A position he held for the next 24 years, retiring in 1995. He participated in the growth and development of thousands of students over a career lasting 41 years, as a strict disciplinarian, many of those students are familiar with his 3 questions; "Who's in the wrong? Who can correct it? And Who's going to correct it if you don't?" Most of the time the student would help correct their own behavior. One of the life lessons he tried to teach was Honesty.
