I have known Mel for many years, having attended school in the CP district. Later in life we enjoyed a professional working relationship. Mel was always polite, a consummate professional and a dedicated educator. I enjoyed working with Mel. Rest In Peace faithful servant.

It was a pleasure working in the Personnel Office in Tacoma at the same time as Mel served in Personnel Department in the Clover Park School District.

Mel was an effective administrator who loved his job with great compassion for all staff and students.

On a personal note, he hired my son, Willie Jr. as a teacher and assigned him to Lakes High School.

This community has lost a great servant leader.

Rest in peace my friend.

Mel Neighbors remains my favorite teacher after 55 years. He was a great teacher, but what I remember most is his gentle kindness. I have thought about him often over the years. It always makes me happy. Thank you Mr. Neighbors.
