Washington, DC – Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on the death of Dr. Michael Doran, principal of Thomas Wootton High School: 
“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Principal Michael Doran. His dedication to bettering the lives of his students lifted our entire community, and he left a permanent mark on Wootton High School and every student who passed through its hallways during his 12-year tenure as principal.
