The lower, middle and upper schools celebrated the birthday and legacy of Howard Nichols on Tuesday and Wednesday by enjoying cookies provided at stations around each campus. Each year, Nichols is honored on his birthday, Oct. 10, for his tremendous vision and hard work in shaping Harker into what it is today. The provided cookies pay homage to Nichols’ practice of keeping a jar of cookies in his office to let passersby know that they could always stop in to chat. Upper school students celebrated one day early due to scheduled testing and service activities. At the preschool, students at the Clover Cottage learned more about Howard and his ability to lead by example.
