Condolence & Memory Journal

I look back 50 years and am amazed that our schools in the state of Texas have degenerated so far. What happened to the George Zoller's? It appears as if there will never be another educator who sincerely was interested in EVERY student and made sure as many as possible were successful in high school and LIFE. This man was iconic and will stand out in the minds of all of us who graduated from Perryton High School during his tenure and beyond with his many educational and community contributions. We will miss him more than you know.

I respected and loved Mr. Zoller! As a high school teacher for many years, I know that it is impossible to have an effective high school with out a firm and supportive principal to lead it. Mr. Zoller was a positive and faithful force at Perryton High School, and I am thankful that he was my principal. My deepest sympathy to Craig and Carla and their families. Sterline (Turner) Marcum
