    I am the widow of Bruce Dunham, who was welcomed by Carl as the first assistant principal ever at GHS. He always enjoyed working under Carl and he and I enjoyed several trips to conventions with them. He was a fair and generous principal and a good friend.

    Dear Dad,
    Though there is a vast emptiness in my heart right now, I know that you are free, happy and healthy. I know that after 21 years you are once again beside your beloved Mary Jo. And there are three cocker spaniels at your feet, each patiently waiting to have their ears scratched. Enjoy your rounds of golf with Mom, Uncle John and Aunt Shirley. Enjoy dancing polkas and waltzes with Mom. And play your accordion so that one day I will find my way home. I love you Dad. Until we meet again.

    I remember Mr. Scott well. He was kind, effective and supportive as our principal at GHS. He permitted us to try new things and listened to us, but he also provided strong leadership.
