Our director, Mr. Cengiz, had the pleasure of visiting Mr. Jesse White’s office on Friday, February 14th. Our director was joined by students and the principals from our sister schools, Horizon Science Academy Belmont and Chicago Math and Science Academy.
Mr. White, who is a former teacher, spent over an hour advising the students on the importance of making the right choices in life and striving for a good education. The students were given a tour of Mr. White’s office and shown the many awards he has received throughout his career. He also provided each of us with an autographed copy of the official Blue Book for the State of Illinois, as well as the Handbook of Illinois Government. The famous Jesse White Tumblers will return to HSA McKinley Park sometime in the Spring, as well. It was a wonderful visit and we are very grateful for Mr. White’s graciousness.
