Mia Hermann and her parents joined me yesterday at the 8th annual Student Recognition Breakfast of the North Cook Region of the Illinois Principals Association. The event was held at the Metropolis Ballroom in Arlington Heights. We enjoyed music from the Maine South Jazz Band. Our keynote speaker was Brian McBride, a retired soccer player from the US national team.
My professional association allows each of its members to invite one student from their exiting grade level to attend and receive recognition. With input from the 4th and 5th grade teaching staff, I selected Mia. We are proud of Mia’s work ethic and character. She has consistently demonstrated responsibility and respect at Willowbrook School. She is dedicated to her academic and personal growth. Mia is a positive person to know!
