Perry Hall, Maryland - March 15, 2018: George Roberts was the principal of Perry Hall High School in 2012 when Robert W. Gladden, Jr. used a shotgun to shoot the back of Daniel Borowy, a student with Downs Syndrome, in the cafeteria, on the first day of the school year. Borowy survived and returned to add his handprint to the Baltimore LOVE Project mural painted in the school's cafeteria. Each handprint on the mural is from every student who was in the cafeteria at the time of the shooting. Boroway's is the lone, light gray handprint on the "O." The mural was finished December 13th, 2012 -- the following day, was the Sandy Hook massacre.
George Roberts now Community Superintendent for Zone 2 of Baltimore County Public Schools.
