We just learned of Mr. Harvey's passing tonight and are heartbroken. He was an exceptional school leader, and we can honestly say that there was no administrator who loved his students more than Guy. He had such a positive impact on the students, faculty, staff and on the whole community. We will miss him. To his family: You have our deepest sympathy, and we want to thank you for sharing him with all of us.
