“Readers get a front-row look at the remarkable education principal Dan Horn provides as the students take center-stage! All I can say is, ‘Bravo!'”
— Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States
“If all the schools in our country were like St. Genevieve, we’d be friendly and peaceful and just a totally different world.”
— Rosalynn Carter, Former First Lady of the United States
“It’s wonderful, it’s emotional, it should be a movie!”
— musical and singing star Helen Reddy
“Dan Horn’s vision and leadership helped transform a troubled inner-city elementary school into a school of national distinction. But he didn’t stop there: he went on to duplicate these efforts at a high school where the whole community attends assemblies, and students have proudly demonstrated their talents for several U.S. Presidents. Horn has made an indelible mark on pedagogy and strengthened the ties between communities and schools. His commitment is inspirational and a model for us all.”
— Chuck D, Rapper/Author/Producer
“I loved it! This true story is both inspirational and entertaining. Horn begins his journey a wannabe actor who finds his true calling only after taking the reins of a struggling school and subsequently discovering that in transforming the place into a source of pride and accomplishment for the community it is he who is truly transformed.
No wonder his students achieve so much; this guy makes education relevant and interesting.”
— Paul Gendreau, former VP, Fox Broadcasting

Miracles are hard to come by in education these days. Anointed Moments chronicles a passel of them, centering around two Los Angeles schools where one humble and incredibly optimistic and energetic man with a vision for what a true “Catholic” education could be, teamed with teachers, students and parents alike to transform these once deeply challenged, about-to-fail institutions into schools of national distinction.
