I know I never mentioned this before, but our wonderful assistant principal is the uncle of Oscar award winning Jennifer Hudson (our AP and her father were brothers). Yesterday, tragedy struck their family, once again. By now, I'm sure all of you have seen the story on the news, even if you don't live in Chicago, because of Jennifer's fame. If you haven't, I've put a link here to one of our local news stations here.
Last year, another member of this family was run over and killed while working as a flagger at a construction site. She also used to work at the Hell-Hole (before my time) so it was really upsetting for most of the staff. I understand that she left the Hell-Hole when she got this "great job" as a flagger. (It was way more money, and everyone was so happy for her.) This family has had to deal with so much heartache and tragedy in a very short period of time. On a much smaller scale, another member had her car stolen less than a month ago.
I've never really written about our AP because, #1, I LOVE him!! I suppose on some level, one of the reasons I've stuck it out at the Hell-Hole is because I'm waiting for him to take over, and fix things!! Reason #2 is because I knew this tidbit of information would remove a great deal of the anonymity surrounding my school. Because of that, I may just be deleting this post in the near future, but first I must make a request. Please, please say a prayer for the Hudson family.
