    Poway Principal Helps Campus Heal

    In the wake of the tragic death of Chelsea King, campus unity and solidarity have been the central themes at Poway High School.  The man leading the charge is principal Scott Fisher who spoke at the 17-year old's memorial service Saturday.

    "A tragedy like this could easily tear apart even the strongest communties, yet while we mourn, Chelsea's passing has strengthened the bonds of this special community more than anyone could've imagined" said Fisher.

    Students and parents say Fisher's leadership has cemented his admiration within their community.  The principal is so well-liked he has his own Facebook fan page with 1,500 admirers.  His tireless efforts to help students cope with Chelsea's death has made parents grateful.

    "I think he has been at the school 24-7 this past week and he has done an amazing job in supporting the kids," said Terry Moreno who has three boys at Poway High.

    Fisher has had a year to remember and for all the wrong reasons.  Chelsea was the school's third student to die suddenly within the past year.  But, parents say they can't think of a better person to be leading their sons and daughters through these difficult times.
