Last night we lost a precious faculty member of our school, our junior high principal. He was a man who lived by doing, by showing his students he cared. My now high school students overflowed with admiration for a man who changed their lives. "I would have been kicked out if it wasn't for him," one said. "He personally took the time to work with me on my grades," another said. "He played basketball with us!" many more remembered. I am inspired by the positive influence one man has had on decades of students. Each child is precious. May we continue his legacy.
