On Friday February 25, 2022 we held our annual Brotherhood, Sisterhood Award ceremony. These awards recognize one faculty member, one staff member, one male student, and one female student, who exemplify what it means to be a good citizen. These 4 honorees actively serve our school community, lead and inspire others, break personal barriers, and lead exemplary lives, all towards the goal of equality and togetherness.
