A Visit From Tony Hiss
On March 4, students at HSAS were treated to a visit from Historian and Author Tony Hiss, also known as the son of Alger Hiss - defendant in the most controversial espionage case in the Cold War. He gave a presentation on his father and his experiences, and took questions from our Juniors.
Thanks to Ms. Genao and the Language Department, HSAS put together a fun week of foreign flix, dance lessons, poetry, and of course food! View some photos of the culinary extravaganza below!
