I have wonderful memories working with Jim when he served in the Internship Program at Easton High School. I worked at St. Michaels High School working in the same program. We worked together in creating many programs serving many students. Jim was a dedicated educator.I am very sad of his passing. My heart goes out to his wife and family.
