Congratulations to Dr. Demetrius Adams, Principal at Hazelwood West High School, who was one of the recipients of Harris-Stowe University’s Distinguished Faculty Award. 

“The Distinguished Faculty Award is nominated and selected by graduating seniors of the College of Education and presented to a faculty member who demonstrates a commitment to our mission of developing reflective practitioners for a diverse society, who are advocates for children and hold themselves accountable for those whom they serve and the profession,” Dr. Marrix D. Seymore, a professor and the dean of the Harris-Stowe State University’s College of Education, detailed. “Dr. Adams is an adjunct faculty member of our team. He has earned the respect and trust of those students under his tutelage.”
