"Achieve the Honorable"
Join Hollywood High School Alumni Association
To say the least, Mr. Majors' class was trans-formative. His exuberant passion for composition, prose, and rhetoric was palpable and fruitful, especially for college-bound students. His love of literature, Dickens and Shakespeare in particular, has no doubt sparked a lifetime of cherished reading and deep learning in many former students. I know it did in me.
Mr. Majors, as I recall, was also politically active in several community-oriented causes. My mother Joy too was an community activist in a number of activities, but from Mr. Majors I learned about developing the "moral courage" to stand up for something that may be unpopular, and perhaps more germane, how to leverage the language skills from class to success in changing the way people think in society. I'll never forget the things I learned from him during classroom, and perhaps even better, during valued, lunchtime talks.
By the way, I know that there is a HHS scholarship fund for a student of English set up in Mr. Majors' name, and I'm sure HHS would welcome additional monies to support a deserving student.
I was very sad to hear about Harry Majors. His class was demanding, but he was the first teacher to teach me how to think as an adult. What I learned in his class has lasted a lifetime.
