There is no greater praise than to get an unsolicited heartfelt compliment, and unbeknownst to Mr. Jason Gullickson, Principal of Ely Elementary School, that is what he was given this weekend. I was witness to this testament; well, I was actually dipping into a conversation that was taking place. First, let me assure you it is not my habit to dip into a conversation and then actually write about it. Though, this is an exception because of the sincerity in which it was said.
The scene is as follows: I was breakfasting at the same establishment as Principal Gullickson and when he left I could over hear a young lady speaking with a co-worker and exclaiming what a wonderful person Principal Gullickson is, and went on to share his virtues and her appreciation of him with her co-worker.
So let this be a shout out to Principal Gullickson for his dedication and the positive impact he has on the youth of this community and a big thank you from The Pierce County Tribune.
