Father’s career shows concern for students

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

One of the greatest lessons I learned from my father was not to pay attention to what others think of you, only what God thinks of you and how you think of yourself.

However, with recent accusations going around, I felt the need to speak out and tell the truth about a man who has shown me, through his actions, the type of person I want to be.

In high school, countless classmates came up to me and would tell me how “cool Mr. Razz” is and how lucky I am that he’s my dad. At every dance, or sports event, he was always trying to pump up the students and make them show their school spirit.

He loves being around the students and helping them with both academic and personal problems. He has been working at New Castle High School for more than a decade and continues to love his job because he is helping kids.

If you were to ask every teacher and administrator if what they do at work each day is out of pure passion for wanting to better the lives of their students, my guess is that only a few who answered yes would be telling the truth, one of them being my dad. He earned his position as junior high principal by proving himself year after year, and is using that position to benefit the students, not himself.

He is living proof that a hard-working person can have success.

Just like with any child, my father and I disagree on things and we argue. He is by no means a perfect person. He is, however, a good man, who has to deal with the disgusting politics of this town.

The truth, however, always comes out. I will continue to support him every day.
