Congratulations goes to Viren Alwani for being named the CTE Scholar Nominee for his demonstration of instructional technology and leadership through presentations and competitions, his many computer certifications and his dedication to service.  Both are fantastic examples of Conch Pride!
KWHS Honors Former Principals
Key West High School was proud to honor former principals of the school with the unveiling of the Principal Legacy Wall.  Replicating a wall that used to hang in the former KWHS building, it depicts the photos of all of the principals of Key West High School since its 1927, 18 in all.  We were fortunate to have five principals, Bobby Menendez, Alma Olson, John Welsh, Terri Axford, and Amber Archer Acevedo and the family of three principals, Sandy Archer - wife of Glynn Archer, Jr., Sandy Highsmith - wife of Kerry Highsmith and Linda Roberts - wife of Tommy Roberts present as well as former Superintendent Dr. A.J. Henriquez.    Each of them made contributions that are heralded in the yearbooks and Snapper pages.  We enjoyed sharing  memories from their days at the helm and the positive impact, the legacy these principals have left.
    The halls of KWHS have been the place of academic accomplishments, athletic feats, artistic creations, and proud displays of work.  The walls have seen joy, laughter, struggles, fear, tears, elation, and the sounds of kids growing and working together.  As a community school, it is at the heart of the city – a place of pride, an element of change and most of all, the builder of our future.  The saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child, and that is evident in Key West as families and friends are tightly woven together in a tapestry of all shades and diversities that come together to support the students that enter our doors.  When a person takes on the leadership of such a great place, it comes with a tremendous amount of responsibility and it takes time and dedication every day, not just when the school bells ring.  To become a Key West High School principal means that you are ready to carry on the torch passed on to you to ensure that every student has the opportunity to be the best they can be and that each staff member and parent knows that they are an integral part of the educational success.  Every family becomes a principals family in some way and as such, their own often play the supporting role to allow the principal to put in the long days, attend the many events and ensure that learning is the top priority while managing the daily operations.  It is a position that does come with challenges, but the successes – the growth and achievement, the light that shines in the students eyes make it worthwhile.
