As expressed by an Anderson district administrator, "His kind and gentle manner have been the approach I have tried to emulate with administrators and teachers over the years. He believed in me, he encouraged me to work hard to maintain our tradition of excellence, and he always had such tremendous gratitude for my efforts. I will forever strive to make this the best school district in the state."; and
