Not sure what to say?

My favorite memory of our dear Mr.Whyte was his many jump suits he owned. He will always be one of my Teachers who left an impression. He was a man full of knowledge. He taught his students to love English.
Thank you Mr. Whyte for being a part of my life.

Mr. Whyte was one of my favorite teachers and one of the reasons I became an English teacher. I still have "Friends, Romans, countryment..." memorized, and my students today also have to learn a Shakespeare speech. What an inspiration. Thanks, Mr. Whyte.

Mr. Whyte was my FAVORITE teacher while attending ALHS in 1985.
Senior year, I had book fees / fines of some sort and if I didn't pay them, I wouldn't graduate.
Mr. Whyte paid the fees out of his pocket so I could graduate!

A great teacher and even greater human being!!


RIP Mr. Whyte

Would pass me by as I waited for the city bus to pick me up to take me to AL. Then one day, he stopped me in the hall to make sure I was who he kept seeing waiting for the bus in all types of weather. From then on until I got a car, he insisted he give me a ride to school each day with no expectation of anything in return. He and his mother were the sweetest people, heart always in the right place.

I am sorry to hear of Mr. Whyte's passing. I am so grateful that I got the chance to have him as a teacher; I had him for Senior Literature, and will always remember his kindness and love of the written word.

What a great teacher and friend he was when I was growing up. A kind man with at huge heart.

My heart is heavy with the sorrow of another family member leaving us. Don Whyte. A true friend, adopted grandfather, and wise person who touched my family in many ways. You were a blessing to us all through the years Don. You are missed. We would ask that God grant you the many blessings that you bestowed upon us. See you later my friend.

Mr. Whyte was my English teacher in 10th grade. He was an excellent teacher who brought out the best in his students. He was a kind, patient man --we are all better because of him.
