Agent Tiffany Stroman was honored last night by Chancellor Carmen Fariña for her exemplary service to our Annex students!  SSA Stroman goes above and beyond for our school.  She is always here and ready to assist in any way possible.  When she is out for a workshop or training, parents always mention how much her smiling face and warm morning welcomes are missed. Please join me in congratulating her.
