  • Thank you, Mr. Schultz

     Fifteen years ago, educator Greg Schultz interviewed for the principalship at North Bullitt High School.

    The search committee, which had passed on the first group of candidates, some fairly impressive, were impressed from the start by Mr. Schultz.

    The committee made the decision to hire him because of the energy he brought to the interview.

    He has contributed to the shaping of Bullitt County minds ever since.
