Furthermore, HJH has become a model of strong community through the valuable Team HJH program that builds unity amongst the student body. Finally, he is known for being student-centered. He genuinely knows his students and their needs while exercising a strong rapport with each of them. This embodiment of our District goal of having every student in our schools be well known is one of the defining characteristics of his leadership.
