Principal Gemar Mills
Mills took over Malcolm X Shabazz in 2011, and changes are already taking place under his watch. Mills has actively fought truancy and low graduation rates in his year at the helm, and he also is seeking publicity for the school. Last year, Shabazz played its first televised football game, which was also the first in the district's history. By offering vocational education in conjunction with its traditional education, Shabazz has progressed over the last two years.
