Back in the day, Andrew Crespo’s M-W High School Class of 2001 classmates voted him Most Likely to Succeed. They sure got that right! Best wishes to Crespo, 2008 graduate of the Harvard Law School, who has been promoted to full professor of law at HLS, effective July 1, 2019. Crespo, who joined the faculty as an assistant professor in 2015, is the first Latino to be promoted to a tenured position on the HLS faculty.

Here’s what Andrew had to say about M-W:

“I can picture each and every one of my teachers, principals, and coaches back at MW—from Pine Tree through Middle School and High School—and remember every one of them with such fondness and affection.  I’ve been a student and now a teacher at Harvard for over a decade, but the teachers I had at MW are still some of the best educators I’ve met. I think of them, and all my great classmates and friends, each time I pull off at Exit 16 on the Thruway to visit home, and see the trio of schools I attended from 1995 to 2001 (we were the second class to graduate from the “new” High School). I feel fortunate to have had such a strong foundation for my education, and such a good model for how to educate others.”

Congratulations on this amazing accomplishment. M-W is so proud! Read on!
