On Wilson High School and Principal Pete Cahall

June 10, 2014

Honesty, humility, and bravery burn brightly in the hearts of the best educators. Caring and generous communities empower the best in each of us.

Principal Pete Cahall and the student body of Wilson High School manifested these words when Principal Cahall publicly came out for the first time at a student pride event last week.

I emailed Pete to congratulate him. In his response to me he said, “I have had thousands of messages of support. I did not come out to inspire but because I was inspired. I did not come out for people to label me as courageous.  I came out because others were courageous and I was just following their example.”

A good man. A good community.
