Calab Hammers received the Principal’s Award during Swiss Memorial Elementary School’s eighth grade promotion ceremony. The award is presented each year in memory of Joyce Hargis, the first principal of the school in 1972. Hargis loved all children and believed they should be ready, responsible, and respectful. “Calab is all three of these and more,” said Clayta Meeks, a teacher at the school. Calab was presented a plaque and $50. Calab is the son of Lisa Hammers.
