"As I am sure that all of you can understand, I am going to miss the kids most of all.  Throughout my 18 years of law enforcement I have had interactions with kids, but it wasn’t until I started at the schools that I really got a chance to build a lot of positive relationships with them.  I hope I have taught them as much as they have taught me and impacted their lives as they have impacted mine." ~ Larry Long
