I am in awe of Dick's life and work which embodies enduring principles of equitable education in all public roles he played. His lifetime of leadership skills helped FEMA when he arrived in L.A. during Northridge Earthquake 20 years ago. In his own way, he was a force of nature certainly impacting the well-being of Redding. My admiration goes out to Dick's family for their support and loving kindness.

Dick was my inspiration for leadership. He fostered my passion for education! Dick hired me in the mid-70s. From that point, I knew that I had a person who would encourage me to be all that I could, in order to help children achieve all that they could. He is the person who told me that if you hear a "no" to look for a different way until I heard a "yes." Little did we know that his influence would be taken to other states, Japan, & China. I'll always remember Dick for his true grit & amazing compassion. Thank you, Dick, for allowing me to learn from the BEST! Sincerely, Kay Quibell Rice

We will always remember Dick for his support and encouragement as we struggled through those early years of teaching. He was a positive influence in so many lives.
