Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Good morning, everyone. We do great things here in Philadelphia and among them on the education side is Girls' High. It's one of our city's premier schools, and I'm so happy that it's in the 8th District, along with some other great schools, but they do a wonderful job and have been at this for 125 years. And so we wanted to take a moment out to recognize them on this very important anniversary.

They have some graduates, including Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, who seemed to come out okay, but my colleague who is a graduate alum of Girls' High, and they have been doing a great job for a long, long time. And so on occasions like this, we really want to take a moment and stop and recognize the excellence in education that we have here in Philadelphia, and we also want to recognize the Alumnae Association, also the principal, Dr. Moore, who has been recognized as the Philadelphia School District's Principal of the Year. So can we give her a round of applause for Dr. Moore right here.
