George Wood poses at Federal Hocking Middle and High School in Stewart, Ohio on July 6, 2010. Wood is the principal at the rural school. Federal Hocking serves a rural part of Southeastern Ohio, nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Plateau. The area is large geographically, covering over 190 square miles. But it produces fewer than 1,100 students for the school district, with only 420 or so students in the secondary school.
