Thank you for choosing to write about Mr. Raisner in Jon Mays’ April 18 column “Unsung hero.” As a parent of a graduate and soon- to-be graduating senior from Carlmont High School, I have seen firsthand the impact that solid teachers with supportive approaches have had at our local public high school. Mr. Raisner is just the latest example of that commitment toward excellence in learning. I am an avid reader of the Scot Scoop News, which gets pushed to my email daily. The Carlmont student community continues to be fortunate to have this breadth of programs, like the journalism program, available to them. It is also fantastic that their efforts have resulted in recognition at the national level.
Thanks also goes out to Mays and his fellow board members of the San Francisco Peninsula Press Club for your follow-through with the district administration to help provide Mr. Raisner the opportunity to guide these young investigative journalists and reporters.
