P.S. 169 names wing after former principal

Dedication ceremonies were held at P.S. 169 in Sunset Park today to honor a former principal. School officials named an entire wing after Yvette Aguirre, who joined the school in 1987 and served as principal for 10 years. She fought against overcrowding by calling for the construction of additional classrooms. Students, former colleagues and elected officials attended the festivities, which included the dedication of a commemorative plaque.
