Punia Family Names a Classroom in the New Middle School

Charlie Punia ’08, Hun School “lifer” and recent Duke University School of Law graduate, credits the Hun Middle School for inspiring his love of learning and his subsequent academic success.  Small class size, innovative teaching, and collaborative learning enriched Mr. Punia’s experience as a student. “It means a great deal to my family that the Hun Middle School remains strong. I left prepared for high school, which prepared me for college and law school. In addition, the friends I made in the Middle School remain some of my closest friends. My entire family recognizes the important impact the Middle School had on my life.”
