Pre­sen­ta­tion High is wor­thy of sup­port

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION -

I write in sup­port of Mary Miller and Pre­sen­ta­tion High School. I am a grad­u­ate of the class of 1985 and both daugh­ters are alum­nae. I at­tribute much of my per­sonal strength and pro­fes­sional suc­cess to the school. We are taught to serve our com­mu­nity and have com­pas­sion for all hu­man be­ings. My fam­ily and I in no way want to dis­credit any in­di­vid­u­als who may have suf­fered sex­ual ha­rass­ment while at the school; we be­lieve Mary Miller is be­ing un­fairly tar­geted.

My daugh­ter also suf­fered sex­ual ha­rass­ment from a fel­low stu­dent while at­tend­ing. When she fi­nally brought the is­sue to the at­ten­tion of the ad­min­is­tra­tion, ap­pro­pri­ate steps were taken and it was han­dled with the ut­most pro­fes­sion­al­ism and care. Mary Miller and the staff were in­stru­men­tal in be­gin­ning her heal­ing process. — Peggy Cirone Shaw, San Jose
