Frech class in '78. Great man, great teacher. Clonkeen is lucky to have him as a teacher and principle. My own kids should be so lucky to have someone like him.

The tool. Pappa Smurf. The boss. A decent enough man, a bit more dynamic than his predecessor. Has tried to give the students a say in alot of issues.

I never really had him as a teacher but I heard he was great. As Principal, he brought Clonkeen into the 21st century. He ended the stagnation under the Doc.
