Molloy, principal of Ardene High, will also be featured in the article in a discussion about the participation of the school in the Scripps Howard competition over the years. Highlighted in the feature will be the historic win by Jody-Anne Maxwell in 1998. Hanif has recently been named head boy for Ardene High School’s 2016/2017 academic year.
