Not sure what to say?

RIP Mr Siler. He ran a tight ship but the success of WSHS even today is because of the foundation he built. I too was one of the fortunate few that were called to his office for a lick or two (for the record, Coach Lowry with his sawed off baseball bat hurt the most). He was a great educator, a great administrator and a great man. Godspeed Mr Siler!

Mr. Siler was an excellent principal, and educator. I graduated class of 1967. He was always fair, and friendly to his students. If you were called to his office, it was for good reason. May his journey be blessed.

A great principle! He will always be in the hearts and minds of so many of the students at White Station that respected him so much.

such a distinguished and inspiring gentleman,

I did not know Mr Rush that well, but knew his three sisters, two of which were my teachers in Silerton. We hoped he could make the Silerton School reunion back in October but his health prevented it. I wish his family peace and joy. Your loss is surpassed only by his joy of finding Heaven.

Mr.Siler was the best principal & we were blessed to have him at WSHS. We will never forget him. My prayers are with his family.

Mr.Siler was such a fine man and principal.I am proud that I was able to attend W.S.H.S. class of 1970 under his leadership. His memory will forever live in our hearts!

We were so fortunate to have Mr. Rush Siler at the helm of White Station. A leader who made an environment to shape future leaders.

I count it an honor to have had Mr. Siler as my high school principal. He was wise, kind, and patient, and sensitive to our needs. We had a world class education due to his efforts and a world of opportunities as a result. He will be missed, and he will be remembered. Marilyn (Anderson) Goggins WSHS class of "59
