Mike Worley, principal at Hermosa Elementary School, settles in this morning for a long day perched atop the roof of his school building. Worley challenged his student body to raise $12,000 in last fall’s Spirit Run, and they met that challenge head on, raising more than $15,000. So, true to his word, Worley is “showing the kids that I was not afraid of doing something difficult as well.” He added it is also his way of showing students “how proud he is of them and their performance throughout not only the school year but especially during the PARCC testing.” Armed with a chair, a cell phone, a laptop, and some sunscreen, Worley will remain on the roof until school dismisses this afternoon.
