In Loving Memory of Lisa Pollari

Lisa Pollari was a teacher and administrator at Port Richmond High School for over 20+ years. During her time here, she impacted the greater community by supporting, inspiring, and teaching students and colleagues how to give back and pay it forward. After a long fought battle with cancer, Lisa peacefully was called home to her eternal rest. Though she may be no longer with us in the physical, she will always remain with us in our hearts. Everyone who was blessed to know her, work with her, and learn from her have truly been given a gift, and that in turn will be passed on for many generations of Raiders to come. Lisa will forever be part of the main vein in the heartbeat that is Port Richmond High School. Once a Raider... always a Raider!
