Ada Dolch was principal of the Leadership and Public Service High School, located next to the World Trade Center. On 9/11, she safely evacuated her students at the same time her sister, Wendy Wakeford, was at work on the 105th floor of the North Tower. In memory of her sister, Dolch helped establish a school in Afghanistan in 2005.
