Haskins to be Honored as Distinguished Alumnus

On Thursday, Dennis Haskins will be honored as the 2000 Distinguished Alumnus. The Chattanooga native has had numerous roles as a television actor, most notably as Mr. Belding, the high school principal in the long-running NBC show "Saved by the Bell."

Haskins continues to bring a message to young students in his numerous visits to schools, as he discourages smoking and drug use. He is the national spokesperson for the Dyslexia Foundation and has supported many educational charities.

Haskins is a graduate of Notre Dame High School. He is currently working on a small independent film called "Ginger's Rise."
