I would like to commend the selection of Mike Godbey as the new principal of Bate Middle School. I had the privilege of growing up with him and going to school with him from 1974 until our graduation in 1987.
He is a true gentleman and a fine person and I don't think that one single person that went to school with him would ever say otherwise.
It is nice to see the Danville Schools get someone of such character. Every parent of a student at Bate will soon find out what a super decision was made in retaining his services. He knows the school inside and out and he knows many on the staff as well.
