With a large family in Bulloch County after spending many summers in Brooklet, I transferred to Southeast Bulloch High School for my junior year (1963 - 1964)from a very large high school in Miami. I'll never forget when walking through the corridors between classes Mr. Godbee would say, "Good morning, Harry" or "Hello, Harry" always calling me by name; always leaving me with the impression he was really glad to see me. Coming from a huge, big city, high school to say I was surprised that he knew who I was and called me by name is an understatement! He was truly interested in others; a remarkable person! His lifetime of achievements will be remembered by all who knew him.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Mr. Godbee was a fair and honest principal. He was stern but you could see the twinkle in his eye, as he stood in the halls of S.E.B. Quietly watching and listening to everything that was going on. He loving earned the name of The Hawk. You will always be lovingly remembered. I had my day in your office as I accounted for a fight. I explained why I had to fight back. I explained to you that sometimes you have to stand up for yourself when you are bullied. You shook your head yes. You smiled and told me to go back to class. From that day on you had my respect. It wasn't given with a stern talk or raising your voice. You simply acknowledged that indeed you do have to stand up for yourself at times. Go rest high on that mountain. Your work here is done.
Class of 1980.

I was so sorry to learn the passing of Mr.Godbee. It has been 40+ years after my graduation and Mr.Godbee crosses my mind at times.Not only do I have fond memories of Mr.Godbee as my principal I had called on him as my State Representive. Mr.Godbee was a fair,honest and honorable man. Mr. Godbee was one of two principals that made such an impact on my life. The other Mr. Jerry Brown(this is good company in my book).May the one true Living God watch over and comfort you the Godbee faimly at this time of Great Loss.My prayers are with you. In Christ name: S.E.B. Class of 1971
