When I had trouble seeing the problems from across the room, he decided to read the problems to me which made everything easier and faster for the class as a whole. Leo is a fine gentleman. We look forward to a great year with him in class!"

Congratulations! Mark was nominated by Mrs. Strydom who said, "for years, I have watched Mark dedicate his time to take pictures of our Greyhound student body. He would stay late at night to take amazing pictures of our student athletes and artists. I have always appreciated his dedication, but never truly realized how selfless Mark is. He took time out of his day to help my sophomores troubleshoot the Wi-Fi access for their personal devices so they could upload their assignments. Without Mark, my class would have fallen into a state of chaos. I can never truly thank him enough for helping a me, a teacher, in a time of need. I will never forget his kind act. Mark truly exemplifies the characteristics we value at Pope High School. Mark... thank you!"
Mark was presented his certificate by Mr. Bradford.
