  • Congratulations Chandler on a job well done! Since I have known you your entire life, I know you are not done yet. Education and seeing children succeed is Chandler's mission and he will work until each child reaches their goal. He gives students and staff respect but expects great things from them. They learn to take pride in themselves and the work they do. These lessons will last a lifetime and serve them well.
