"I can always rely on Neal's judgment and tenacity. I have watched his ability to establish a correct course of action, to hold firm, and to follow up until a solution was achieved.

In my former career as a high school English teacher, I observed similar qualities in only one principal of the numerous principals I worked under. Strong, smart, decisive, and determined leadership is rare and Neal exemplifies it! I consider him a terrific manager and wish he were back at Parkway."
