On behalf of the TCA Titan of the Year Committee, the parents of TCA and TCA’s Board of Directors, the 2021-2022 Titan of the Year award was presented to Mr. Hugh DiPretore at our Teacher In-Service, Thursday, August 11, 2022.
Hugh DiPretore has served as a principal at TCA for 14 years. Mr. D, as he is affectionately known, first started at TCA as Assistant High School Principal and shortly thereafter became principal of the high school. The last 10 years he has been the Junior High Principal. Mr. D creates a caring and welcoming atmosphere for students and parents.
Mr. D goes above and beyond in getting to know the students. He lets them know he cares while taking the time to know their names, stories, strengths, and weaknesses. His students' personal development is very important to him.
Mr. D displays selflessness by putting the needs of others in front of his own. Not only with his students, but his teachers as well. He supports and collaborates with them, advocating for the good of each student. He is the biggest cheerleader, supporter, and encourager with everyone his life touches.
We have posted Mr. D's Titan of the Year video here so you can learn more about him. We encourage you to take a few minutes out of your busy day to see what this special award is all about that and celebrates all the amazing TCA staff. If you see Mr. D, please congratulate him on this great honor!
