What do you like about working at University High School?

There is so much to love about University High School! The students are always offering to scratch my belly, there are lots of good places to curl up and take a nap, and the colors — navy and gold — look great with my fawn complexion. Plus, the 115-acre campus is a great place for me to run and explore. I love being a Trailblazer!

Personal Information

Hank is a 7-year-old pug. He lives in Indianapolis with his human, Lade Akande, University High School’s Director of College Counseling. When not visiting classes, roaming the halls, or attending sporting events at University High School, he can be found resting at home, wearing fashionable sweaters, studying up on the mascot habits of Butler Blue II, and enjoying life.
