Mr. Hawkins was a great principal - people just didn't like him because he wasn't a push over. He made high school a great experience.
you were always friendly and approachable. the only people who didn't like you were the ones that got in trouble all the time.
Now in university, I must say that Mr. Hawkins is one of the worst principals ever. I respected him in the beginning, and hated him in the end. What a shame!
