Tom Otten, principal of Elder High School for the last 19 years, waving goodbye before he left the Price Hill/Cincinnati school on his last day.

Beloved Elder High School Principal Tom Otten retired a month ago after 55 years at the school — the last 19 as principal. Elder posted this photo on social media at 2:30 pm, the time school ends for the day, writing “ Thank you, Mr. Otten. God bless you! #Altiora.

Altiora – “higher” – is the Price Hill/Cincinnati all-boys’ high school’s motto, and the rallying cry for its thousands of students and alumni.
