I recently visited Walter Young Middle while back in Davie for a visit. It was such a wonderful surprise to see that the logos I had painted on the walls were still there. I painted them before the opening of the school. I became good friends with James Dobson in those days, and became assistant to Jim Davidson during those early days. What a nice surprise! Took me back in time! So happy to see that the school is still there and doing well! Brought back many great memories and touched my heart!
