The best of Los Alamos High School was on full display Wednesday as Education Secretary designate Hanna Skandera came to town.
She was here to congratulate Los Alamos High School for getting an “A” during a recent evaluation by the state.
Accompanied by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gene Schmidt, she received a warm welcome as soon as she entered the school’s lobby, greeted by the high school’s principal, Sandra Warnock.
As members of the high school orchestra played classical music in an alcove above the lobby, Skandera got to meet the school’s award-winning “Team Y” robotics team as well as their latest creation, a basketball-shooting robot.
She also sampled some of the appetizers and desserts the schools culinary arts students made.
She also gave a speech at the event, a speech that centered on the high school’s achievements.
“Job well done, not only to your leadership, but to every teacher, parent and community member that has made this a school of excellence,” she said. “Thank you for letting me be a part of your hard work, your commitment to your students, and for letting me celebrate your success with you.”
