Throw Back Thursday!

That’s right, featured in our first ever Throwback Thursday is Mr. Ruggeri! The honors history teacher is renowned for his captivating lectures that provide an entertaining insight into various historical events, but what was he like before he became a fan favorite staff member?

As fate would have it, the man in question described his teenage self as: “A history dork in high school, too!”

While his passion for the subject has persevered through college and many years of teaching, what about his deep love for George Washington? In this scandalous photo, Ruggeri is seen wearing a different President’s hat, which begs the question: What happened? Was George Washington ever not Ruggeri’s favorite President?

The world may never know.
