It is funny how things work in life.  It wasnt that long ago that I recalled Mr Hughe's image in my mind and had a warm feeling. 

Whether at Bowie or IHS, I recall his commanding presence in the halls and his announcements over the PA.  He was always a friendly smile, a sense of fairness and most respectable leader.  I recall Norman Hughes as a very good man who made this place a little better.  I look forward to seeing him again and hope for more like him in 'this world' until that time.

God be with his family and friends.
