Aaron Rucker HonoredCHICAGO– Retired Army major and school chairman Aaron Rucker is being honored with the Governor’s Award for excellence in education and his role in improving programs in a troubled school.

Rucker described an environment where fights were common, the smell of marijuana wafted outside classrooms and students played dice in the bathroom.

“Now the only thing you can hear is teachers teaching,” Rucker said, standing in a hallway halfway through third period. “We are trying to change that paradigm, and it’s working.”
