Goodbye, Mr. Mitchell
Our dear beloved principal, Mr. Ron Mitchell is leaving to become principal at Lamar High School.
The times we have had with our principal will never be forgotten. He puts a smile on all of our faces and he will do the same thing at Lamar. It all started when he decided to become a principal.
As a teacher he was able to reach 25 students, but as a principal, he gets to educate all students.
He has been our principal, first at South, then at East, for nine years. and we have had so many memorable times, especially the reading promotions. He has dressed like a cheerleader, danced to "Thriller," had his legs waxed and his head buffed, and this year, dressed in a pink gown with a blonde wig, all to encourage students to read books.
We will all miss Mr. Mitchell, but we wish him happiness and good luck in Lamar.
