SENTOR ANNUAL N327 11 f1"" Glenn C. Harris T is impossible to express our regret at the departure of our super- intendent, Glenn C. Harris, who, since his School in 1923, has won for himself, hy his greetings and unobtrusiveness, a eherished students and townspeople. arrival at Hamburg High never failing smile, kindly place in the hearts of both Le 'QP' .tg 'Q if u 'gill .,"Z , .j remain of the most praiseworthy High School, will always The achievements of this man, some developments in the history of Hamburg as monuments to his unquestionable ability. Under his guidance the weekly Friday morning assemblies were originated. He suggested and carried out the well-known and celebrated one- session sehoolday. Mr. Harris may well be called the father of our sc-hool for it was under his careful supervision that this structure was erected and equipped. lt was through his influence that one of the most popular branches of the school curriculum, the commereial department, was originated in 1925. His sense of justice prompted him to enforce the prohibition of the presentation of blank diplomas to students unqualified for gradna' tion. He also secured the provision of a school nurse and regular elinies for the pupils of Hamburg schools, But the little deeds of kindness and helpfulness, which he has done for us, are acts that are esteemed by everyone whom he has under his eharge: VVhen we were disheartened he encouraged usg VVhen we wished to drop subjects he talked to us and inspired us tobrace up and work all the more iudustriouslyg VVhen we succeeded he always congratulated us heartily and told ns that he had been quite confident that we could accomplish the task, His delight at our sueeess was a greater recompense than any tem- poral reward 5 lf we committed any wrong, he showed us wherein we had erred but never became angry or impatient with us, He always looked upon our social and athletie activities with a favoring smile and a. generous disposition, lf, at any time during our course, we could not decide what path to take, we always found Mr. Harris, standing at the cross-roads like a sign post, pointing in the direction which he thought best for us. Just so, he has gone through difficult situations during the past four years with perseverance, patience and calmness. V And so, in bidding farewell, we give to Mr. Harris our fondest apprecia- tion. His reserved disposition, the unassuming manner in which he allows others to receive the credit for his aehievements, and his sincere friendship for his pupils will ever remain in our memories. t
