In memory of Charles Gordon Greene who passed away April 29, 2001.

 

WHEREAS, the Mayor and Council are saddened by the death on April 29, 2001, of Charles Gordon Greene, principal of Hickman Mills High School; and

 

WHEREAS, Mr. Greene, known to friends and family as Chuck, was devoted to education and young people and spent his life teaching and administering, first in North Kansas City, Bolivar and Kansas City, Kansas schools before coming to the Hickman Mills C-1 District, where he worked for twenty years; and

WHEREAS, as principal of Hickman Mills High School for almost a decade, Chuck was responsible for innovative programs that won him the well-earned attention of teachers, students and parents. Chucks expertise in education was obvious, and was second only to his care and concern for those around him; and

 

WHEREAS, Chuck Greenes most meaningful lessons were communicated to others through his ability to persevere in the light of great physical difficulty. He met his challenges with a special spirit and aplomb, and in so doing was the model of courage and goodness; and

 

WHEREAS, it is with sadness that we honor Mr. Greene today, after his untimely death, but honor him we do. His was a life dedicated to education and to young people and he will be forever remembered for his contributions to the people and schools he so ably served; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby express their profound sorrow on the death of Charles Gordon Greene; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to the family in token of the genuine esteem and respect in which Charles Gordon Greene was held, and in token of the deep and sincere sympathy hereby extended to the bereaved family.
