Mr. N was one of the hardest working, most honest people I ever met. He put up with a lot of my non-traditional methods in the classroom and always tried to help. Mr. N was never above mopping the floor and spent much of his own money and time maintaining Rolling Prairie Elementary school when he was principal. I've not seen another principal as dedicated as he was. He had and still has my greatest respect. I am so sorry for your loss. He was truly a great man and I feel honored knowing him.
