 Mr. Humes was nominated by Matthew Zaksheske. Matthew writes: Mr. Humes is the greatest teacher ever. Not only does this man take the time to individually instruct each of his students, but he pays special attention to troubled students (encouraging them to succeed when most have given up on them.) Mr. Humes has set up no less than 6 café ladies day (a day dedicated to the acknowledgement of those over worked, under paid heroes of the food service industry.) He has supported me in all my endeavors (acting, singing, and honors/advanced placement courses.)

Mr. Humes has taken time to help paint banners for senior projects. He constructs props and backdrops for many Vocal Ensemble Dinner Theatre Productions. I cannot imagine what the fine arts at this fine school would look like if he was not a part of it. Not because he’s the greatest artist in the world, although he is the best I have worked with, but because unlike many teachers I feel like I actually have a friend in this man. He is always willing to talk, (and he does it often) to listen, to let a student whose been up all night doing homework to take a little nap, and to bend the rules to make sure that a student doesn’t just succeed in school, but in life. I have never known a teacher like him in life. He has inspired me to pursue a career in education, and I hope that I am half as good as he is at what he does. In closing I feel honored to nominate my hero, George Humes.
