Study reveals that 50% of freshmen don’t know who Mr. Hughes is

From a recent The Merionite survey, editors found that a large number of freshmen don’t actually know who Mr. Hughes is. Whether this is caused by sheer incompetence or online learning, The Merionite does not know. What can we do to help?

The Merionite news editors were recently astonished when finding out that roughly 50% of the freshman class do not know who Mr. Hughes is. In their survey regarding LM’s administration’s decision to go back to hybrid, this shocking information was revealed in a question naming the school’s principal. 

“Is that the bike guy?” asked one anonymous freshman, clearly confusing Mr. Hughes for LM-famous bolt cutting extraordinaire KP.

“I didn’t know he moved from BC,” states another child—I mean freshman—this time confusing the principal for the sixth-grade math teacher Kevin Hughes. To shine a light on Mr. Hughes’s persona, The Merionite will be hosting a student-made documentary screening on Wednesday, December 23.
