Condolence: I had the honor of working with Rusty in Mecklenburg when he was with the alternative education program at Bluestone High School and then the gifted education program at South Hill Elementary. He was a wonderful teacher and connected with the students no matter the age or learning level they were at, he knew how to work with everyone. He was filled with love and believed in guiding, supporting, and passing on his years of experience to others he worked with. I will always remember the times I spent with him with great fondness and cherish the times we laughed at the antics of the children.
Rusty, you were one in a million and I will miss you very much.
