The TV show, “Everybody Loves Raymond” must have been based on John Hazzard, because “Everyone Loves John”.  John is truly a gentle giant.  His personality and smile are infectious.  John started in the Honors program at SRHS but wanted to push his academics by applying for the pre-IB program for 10th grade and then applying for the IB Diploma Programme.  He is willing to work for his success.  Congratulations John!
