WA SIRLOIN TIPS LA Y HUFF For Perkins-Tryon School Board Larry Huff believes there are three important factors needed to achieve a strong school system, they are: 1. An open-minded school board willing to listen to and uphold the rights of the Administration, faculty and staff. 2. The encouragement of parental and community input and participation in conjunction with the school board and administration. 3. The need to listen to the ideas of the student body and to support all activities from educational to extracurricular. Remember, this is your school system! !
