During my time volunteering in the offfice at GHS my paths crossed often with Chris Mance. He was the assistant principal then. I remember thinking what a great principal he would be. He had just the right balance of truth and grace. By that he was a man who was not afraid to do the hard thing but fairness and wisdom were both his guide. I knew him to be a man of strong faith who loved his family. He believed in empowering oneself to be the best they could be. He was an example of that. I am sure many students will take him with them into their futures and continue his legacy.
