The school was dedicated in 1974, and named for a local philanthropist, Mr. Demetrio David Hachar.  His generosity toward others had enabled high school graduates to pursue further study at college and universities by receiving scholarships, which he has made available to them.  His unassuming and humble ways have exemplified the qualities of a Good Samaritan.  He truly deserves the honor bestowed on him by having this school bear his name.
