Ryan Hogan is a transformer. A survivor. A solid student and friend. When the Secondary Academy for Success (SAS) senior walked through the Bothell high school’s doors four years ago, he was still devastated from his experiences at his junior high school. “I was teased, pretty much bullied every day, and the teachers did nothing about it,” he said last Thursday while relaxing in the SAS lounge. “The rumors about my ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) didn’t help. I didn’t understand how to argue — so I sort of gave in.” Enter SAS, and a new life for Hogan. He’ll graduate with more than full credit and in the top percentage of his class at 7 p.m. June 13 at the Northshore Performing Arts Center.
