Remarks by Nancy Lambert at unveiling of Julian King pictures at Johnson School, 1986.
"But first I want you to understand that Mr. King was a man of deep faith. It was his religion that guided him like a compass - a North Star - in his everyday encounters. Mr. King's life was an example of his faith in action. He believed that you need to love life to understand life and you need to love what you do. He taught us to rejoice in our many gifts and talents and to give a helping hand to others. As our principal he showed us by example how to work hard, how to achieve, how to deal with setbacks and the dark times. He worked to instill within each child a sense of school pride and the belief that we come to school to learn. He also showed us that life can be filled with mirth, laughter, sheer joy and frequent silliness."[2]
