Speak Up: New Caesar Rodney High principal arrives enthusiastically


Principal Freeman Williams III is connecting with students one fist bump at a time. Or perhaps it’s a handshake or a quick chat, as they walk through Caesar Rodney High School’s hallways. That positivity is key for the administrator, taking on a new role in the school district he’s worked in 25 years.
