Prior to wrapping up the evening, Eisenhower Middle School Principal Dominick Miller stepped up to the microphone to recognize Swanson for his leadership and commitment to Roxbury High School. Miller will become the high school principal in July.

“The high school administration and myself were able to finagle some things this year and we’re going to recognize someone who has been committed, loyal and represented Roxbury High Schoolnot for four years but for 15 years," Miller said, presenting the award to Swanson.

To this announcement, the students erupted in applause and cheers along with the chants of “Swan Daddy.”

Swanson will retire June 30 after 15 years at the helm of Roxbury High School.
