George Keith was often the first one at all of the events and the last one to leave.  He could often be found setting up the pylons and removing them after the homecoming football games and then saying goodnight to the custodian after he turned out the lights in the big gym and locked the doors. 

George showed a true dedication to his career, the school and the students.  George Keith served this community proudly for many years, and laid the foundation for many of the programs we enjoy today.
