‘A truly great man’: Milt McPike dies at 68


It didn’t matter to Mr. McPike whether you were black, asian, hispanic, white, rich or poor. When you were in his school – he treated everyone the same – with dignity, with respect and with just a tad bit of patience for teenaged mistakes. It was also the expectation of Mr. McPike’s that you treated everyone else the same way.

When I look back to my high school years, I wonder how that man actually got any administration work done, as he always seemed to be walking the halls, surrounded by students, telling stories, hearing ours, giving hugs and being a supportive part of our lives.

In the coming days, there will be thousands of tributes from students and the community he touched during his life – And this man deserves every accolade that will be said.

Mr. McPike had such an influence in the way I see the world, the way I value my community, how I raised my children, and how I learned to believed in my own abilities.

Thank you Mr. McPike. You were a true teacher.
