Classmate Remembered on Hat Day

a member of the Class of 2016 who passed away in August. Through Make a Wish he and his family went to Paris last Spring. Many people

remember Zahir as wearing a hat, so staff and students donated money and wore hats that day. The E & S community raised over $500 in

Zahir's name.  It was a great way for his friends to remember him.
