I was pleased to hear that Lt. Col. Raoul Archambault, one of the teacher-leaders of the JROTC program at Hope High School, received a “Golden Apple” award this week from RIDE, NBC10, and Hasbro.
Information about the award can be found at the following links:
I met Lt. Col. Archambault and some of his students a few weeks ago at the Hope High open house.
I was so impressed with these kids, their achievements, their investment in their school and the JROTC program, as well as the overall school environment. These students took me on a tour of the school, and proudly showed me not only their listings on the school academic honor rolls and the JROTC trophies, but many of the other positive features of Hope High, including the newly renovated (and beautiful) science classrooms. I also met several very engaging teachers.
Overall, I came away very impressed, and hopeful that East Siders could and should consider looking at Hope High School for their high school age children.
