Our attendance rate and tardiness went down by 50 percent this week. One senior even told me he'd come to school on time each day if he could come at 11 a.m..
He's here now and we couldn't wait. The fit for the kids is sensational and I'm thrilled to have him as coach.
We looked at him when he came here three years ago. This guy does an excellent job in the classroom and he'll make an excellent coach. I really listened to how he responded to questions in the interview and I was very impressed.
No, that wouldn't have mattered. We had a man here already on our staff that was ready to go. That played into it as well. I think the overall philosophy of the game, the things Todd wanted to do, the discipline, Mark's going to do it.
Each day the students were served a free breakfast that I paid for out of the principal's fund. We also told them to get a good nights sleep each night.
When I was a Marine in the hospital during Vietnam, I would have died without being given blood so I know first-hand the importance of having blood available. I always donate and I am very happy to see so many of our kids donate also. We will continue to have the mobile in the future.
