Thank You Mr. Shaw!

Yesterday we learned the sad news that, after 14 years of exemplary leadership at Fort Herriman Middle School, Principal Rodney Shaw will be leaving. Mr. Shaw has received the assignment to work as an administrator on special assignment in Jordan School District’s Teaching and Learning Department, and next year will serve as the principal of the new middle school in Bluffdale.

Words inadequately express how much we will miss you, Mr. Shaw. We will never forget you, nor the legacy of learning you spearheaded at FHMS. We love you, Mr. Shaw!
