Principal Carlo Conte recalled a poem, The Man in the Glass, which was an assignment in high school. He recited the poem as encouragement for the graduating class.
“Things that were once scary or tough and standards that seemed unattainable became within my grasp as the year went on,” he noted. “When you are faced with what seems daunting and insurmountable, dig deep.
