We are the grandparents of a student in the recent graduation ceremony of Salem High School. We want to compliment the principal John Hall & assistant principal Sandy Hadaway for the manner in which they handled the situation with the special needs child who was scared and too embarrassed to go up the steps to get her greatly desired diploma.
The principals took it upon themselves to leave the stage, go down the steps and give the young lady her diploma. Her eyes lit up, she gave a thumbs up sign and with a standing ovation from the whole assembly, that great moment in her life was made complete.
May God give a special blessing to Mr. Hall, the principal Ms. Hadaway, the assistant principal, the students of SHS and other faculty who comforted the young lady. It was very obvious that all of them love this child. We know her family and friends must be very proud of her.
Principal Hall isn’t only a kind and thoughtful person in a school related situation, he is also in the outside world. Our son is disabled from an accident. Mr. Hall has befriended him many times at a local gym which has meant so much to our son and us. We will never forget his thoughtfulness.
