When I had to cram a year of Physics into 4 months to be allowed into my college of choice, Mr. MacBain was the one who made it happen - for this reason and many others he was a good man.

I am so glad that I was able to tell Malcolm how much he influenced me and my life a few years ago. He was crucial to my success as an adult, and helped me realize what I had to offer the world. He was a true inspiration.

Mr. McBain made me want to go to college. I wrote him a letter a few years ago to thank him for that. As a teacher myself I am well aware of how we often never say thank you to those who have impacted our lives. As teachers that leaves us to wonder if we ever truly make an impact. He wrote me back to say thank you for the note. I am glad I did that.
