ADL Arizona has designated 31 Arizona schools as No Place For Hate® (NPFH). Among them is Hayden High School (HHS) which is being recognized for creating a safe learning environment, bringing awareness to the issues of bullying and bias, promoting diversity, unity, and respect among students. No Place For Hate® is an ADL initiative offering students, teachers, administrators and family members the opportunity to work together to enhance a culture of respect in the school community. The program encourages schools to complete various campus activities and projects to promote unity and reduce bullying, name-calling and other expressions of bias.
Carlos Galindo-Elvira, an HHS 1985 graduate and ADL Arizona Regional Director, commented, “I am beaming with pride that Hayden High School joins 30 Arizona schools committed to campuses free of bias, bullying and bigotry.” Adding, “The work by Hayden High School demonstrates the leadership and direction of students working toward inclusivity and respect for all students.” Hayden High School’s banner was presented to the HHS No Place for Hate Committee at a student assembly on May 15, 2019. Members of the committee include: Carol Monroy, Joel Rodriguez,
Noah Monroy, Robert Manriquez, Jorge Rodriguez, Ari Pacheco, Josiel Rodriguez, and Adriano Cruz. Mrs. Laura Lopez, an HHS teacher, serves as the NPFH School Coordinator.
