Mr. Dennis M. Williams, Jr.
High School Principal
My name is Dennis M. Williams, Jr. and this marks my ninth year as an administrator at this fine high school and eighth as the building principal. As a 1993 graduate of Hatboro-Horsham High School, I am continually excited about leading this building to new levels of achievement. I attribute a great deal of my professional success to my experiences and memories at H-H and the local community. I loved my time here and was active in a variety of ways. I was an all-conference football player and discus thrower at H-H and was a member of the 1992 District One Championship Football Team recently inducted into the H-H Athletic Wall of Fame. I was also a member of the Black Student Union, Spirit Committee, Red & Black Captain and the FBLA.
I moved on to play football and throw the discus at Muhlenberg College where I was an All-Conference selection. I majored in History and Secondary Education before graduating from Muhlenberg in 1997. I was recently on the board of advisors at Muhlenberg for the Multicultural Center for Education. Immediately after college, I taught Social Studies at Cheltenham High School, was a class sponsor, prom adviser, teacher mentor, after school tutor, Student Assistance Program team member, assistant varsity football coach and head varsity throwing coach for the track team. I completed my certificate in Educational Administration at Gwynedd-Mercy College and my Superintendent Level certification is from Arcadia University.
Professionally, I enjoy expanding my knowledge base in the field of education and sharing some of the wonderful things happening in the areas of social-emotional education and leadership. I have been a presenter at the National Middle School Conference, Pennsylvania Association of Elementary and Secondary Schools Conference, University of Pennsylvania DVMSAC Conference, NAVIANCE Summer Institute, Pennsylvania Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development State Conference and the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development National Conference.
Mr. John Zuk
Assistant Principal for Curriculum & Instruction
My name is John Zuk and this is my seventh year in administration, my second here at H-H. Prior to coming to Hatboro-Horsham HS, I most recently served as assistant principal at Southern Lehigh High School in Center Valley where I was responsible for many things including scheduling, student discipline, and teacher supervision. From 1999 and prior to becoming an administrator, I was a mathematics teacher, head swimming coach, assistant football coach, SAP team member, Middle States Internal Coordinator, Data Team leader and a member of the Strategic Planning Committee at Southern Lehigh.
I reside in Center Valley with my wife, Collette, and our two daughters, Avery and Kendall. I received my Administrative Certification from Penn State University, my Masters degree from DeSales University and my Bachelors degree from Kutztown University. I enjoy competing in Ironman, Half Ironman, Olympic and Sprint Triathlons and a variety of swimming, running and biking events.
Last year proved to be an exciting year, in which I met and worked closely with many teachers, parents and students and experienced great events such as, Red and Black Days, the Variety Show and Mr. HH. I expect to have another enjoyable year working with the teachers, parents and most importantly the students of Hatboro-Horsham High School.
Mr. Ralph Rapino
High School Assistant Principal - Grades 10 & 12
Mrs. Tamara Stavenski-Bennick
High School Assistant Principal - Grades 9 & 11
My name is Tamara Stavenski-Bennick. This is my second year as an assistant principal at Hatboro-Horsham High School, where I serve as the house principal for studentsin grades 9 and 11. I am excited to be back for another year in the Hatter Nation and am eager to continue to work with the high school’s faculty and staff to help students achieve excellence in the classroom, in the community, and beyond.
I am a native of the Philadelphia suburbs, as I grew up in Phoenixville (locatedin Chester County). I am a 1997 graduate of Phoenixville Area High School, earned my B.A. from La Salle University in 2001, and earned my M.S.Ed. from Wilkes University in 2006. I have been involved in post-graduate work at Lehigh University and plan to continue my studies. Continuing my education is something that I highly value as a life-long learner and educator, and it's an attribute that I hope our students strive to attain in their lives as well.
Prior to coming to HHHS, I worked as an assistant principal at Louis E. Dieruff High School in the Allentown School District. I also taught English and served as a SAP team member and as an assistant softball coach at Easton Area High School. Both schools provided me with an array of teaching and learning experiences. I know that much of who I am today as an educational leader stems from my various experiences while in Easton and Allentown, and for that, I am forever grateful.
And so, now I stand as a Hatter--- finally having the chance to move my career back to the area that I have forever called home. Moving forward, I am eager to assist the students and families of Hatboro-Horsham. Even more exciting is the fact that I get to be surrounded by many Eagles, Flyers, and Phillies fans on a regular basis at Hatboro-Horsham, as much of my free time (along with my husband's) is devoted to following my beloved Philadelphia sports teams. In addition, when I do get to enjoy some free-time, I enjoy working around the house, shopping, reading, working out,and frequenting Flyers, Eagles, and Phillies games with my husband.

Mr. Louis James

My name is Louis F. James. I am a 33 year resident of Horsham and married to Cheri (Snyder) James, a 1976 graduate of HHHS. We have 5 wonderful children, Jennifer, Julia, Jessica, Kevin and Christina who are all graduates from H-H. I am very proud as a district employee and community member of the education our children have received from the Hatboro-Horsham School District. Of the five that have graduated each has moved on to institutions of higher learning.
Personally, I received a B.S. in Sociology from Westminster College in 1980. There I played football for the Titans where we won 2 Division II National Championships in 1977 and 1978. My hobbies include golf and sports in general. I have spent many seasons on the sports fields with all of my children coaching and also just enjoying them. I also spent many seasons as the high school softball coach here. The 2012-13 school year marks the start of my 8th year as the Athletic Director. I still find it to be very rewarding and challenging.
Over the 30 plus years my wife and I have imbedded ourselves in the community through volunteerism and running a local business. My family feels that this is a wonderful community in which to live, work, and raise our family.
