First and foremost, thank you for your interest in Heritage Hall. While I hope our website will give you a window into the dynamic learning environment fostered by our esteemed educators and motivated students, it doesn’t tell the whole story; it’s something you should see for yourself. I encourage you to experience Heritage Hall first-hand by scheduling a tour or shadow day. And while you’re here, don’t hesitate to stop by my office in the Administration building to say hello.
You may not be aware, but I am relatively new to Heritage Hall, just in my second year as its President. In a European Review journal article (and subsequent Ted Talk), the renowned physicist, Adrian Bejan, explains why time feels like it moves faster as we age – a mysterious phenomenon connected to how our neural pathways process information. Well, I’m no physicist, but I can tell you this: the past year, my first as a Charger, has flown by.
When my colleagues across the country asked about my first year, they presumed that taking on a leadership position at a school amid a year that brought such extraordinary challenges must have been a difficult and exhausting experience. But, to be honest, my year was nothing like that. My year was exhilarating, filled with bold educational endeavors and community spirit, welcoming and warmth from the entire Heritage Hall family. It’s been what is easily the most rewarding year of my academic career. I look forward to many more to come.
As my first year ended, with tears and joy, we said farewell to the class of 2022. As always, it was an awe-inspiring Charger graduation ceremony, and I felt overwhelmed with gratitude. For my family and me to be included in this community, with its unwavering commitment to its students and its mission to Learn, to Lead, to Serve, is everything we could have hoped for and then some.
On behalf of Heritage Hall, I hope we have the opportunity to welcome your family to our community in the same way the community welcomed mine.
