Ricardo Fernandez, President of Lehman College will soon be retiring. HSAS proudly hosted him at the school on April 6, and awarded him an honorary diploma. It was noted at this ceremony that President Fernandez is one of the true founders of the school. More than fifteen years ago, he was one of the early advocates calling for a high school to be located on the campus, that would forge strong connections with the college. Also present at the ceremony was Sandra Lerner, Deputy to the President for High School and Educational Initiatives.
