Superintendent Dr. Alex Cherniss stated, "The Golden Bell Award recognizes extraordinary programs while rewarding innovation. This is the most prestigious achievement a program can receive, and I'm so proud of Ms. Hernandez, Ms. Pauline, Assistant Principal Berry, and our students for making this dream a reality".
San Marino High School Assistant Principal Mr. Doug Berry added, “This groundbreaking course is taught by two amazing teachers and strives to provide San Marino High School students a 21st-century learning experience through innovative instructional strategies, while taking advantage of the one of a kind resources at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. The collaboration between these two groups provides students with a college-level class experience which is equivalent to a UC course.”
Board of Education President Mr. C Joseph Chang expressed, “On behalf of the Board of Education, congratulations to Mr. Berry and his team for this remarkable achievement. The Honors Humanities Seminar program is an excellent example of working together with the Huntington Library and the District's successful partnerships with the San Marino community to benefit our students."
