Comments about Mike:

Mike has shown his amazing ability to peace-make with parents at football games and deserves mad accolades for not strangling a fool.

Big Mike relates to students in a very professional manner. He encourages them to do their best and be on their best behavior. He is a role model for them and they positively respond to his style of securing the campus.

Big Mike always has a smile on his face.  He makes sure to ask about my day.  In addition, he coaches girls' basketball.  What a great way to connect with our students!
