    Will always remember the good times at Central Jr. High, where teaching and learning was FUN and not just a job. All the great memories .... The Christmas parties and skits, the Norman trips, the Hillview after conferences, the Softball games and so many more... Nick you touched so many lives and I for one would like to thank you for giving me my first job in teaching. Rest in peace, you will always be remembered and missed.... Your Italian friend Sal ( THE ONLY ONE)

    Thank you, Nick. You encouraged us to enjoy Central and still be efficient and professional. There are so many stories like the time we put the big telephone booth in your tiny office, and the time you tricked me into giving myself the Clyde Award. Who can ever forget you as Karnac, the Magnificant? God bless you; you will never be forgotten by your Central family.

    Oh, Nick, you were the best principal a school district and teacher could have. Working with you at Central School was the best job I ever had. I learned to be a teacher and looked forward to coming to work every day. Just save a place close to the bar for us from Central.

    I offer my condolences to the family for your loss. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life because Jesus promised a time when we can be reunited with our dear loved ones. (John 5:28,29) May your reflection on this hope and the fond memories you have bring you comfort and strength to endure this difficult time.
