Gompers Preparatory Academy welcomed a special guest this February, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer! Mayor Faulconer was greeted by our amazing Senior Class of 2015, who welcomed him with a smile and firm handshake. After watching a special performance by our own Jersey Boys, Mayor Faulconer took time to shake the hand of each of our seniors on his way to our Director’s Conference Room. There he heard the story of GPA, watched GPA’s historical videos, and spoke with our leadership team and board members.
Mayor Faulconer also visited our Middle School computer lab, where Mr. Bentz and some of our Middle School students greeted him with enthusiasm. He was presented with a gift from Muhammad E. who gave him a custom made name plate that Muhammad created and printed on our 3D printer. After his classroom visit, Mayor Faulconer was sent off the GPA way – with a smile and some dancing!
A special thank you goes out to Mayor Faulconer and all of his amazing staff!!!
