Dillon Bone wants to be just like Mr. Howell when he grows up – a helper.
And a helper would be a good way to describe Jack Howell, principal, Conklin Community School, but guardian angel would be even better.
The school’s very core changed in September of 2009 with his advent. There was no janitor, no bus driver, no cook, and no supplies. The school had gone through many teachers in the last five years, with the exception of one dedicated teacher who has been there for the last 10 years.
