Our staff member of the week for this edition is our very own principal, Rick Gross. Mr. Gross graduated from Bath High School in 1979 where he played a variety of sports. He lettered in football three years, basketball one year, wrestling two years, and track all four years of high school. He went on to attend the University of Findlay for Science, Health, and Physical Education. Mr. Gross also played football at Findlay and was a part of a National Championship team. He has been in the public education system since 1983, and has taught science, coached sports, been an athletic director and is still running the position of principal. Mr. Gross says the favorite part of his job is watching students succeed. In his free-time he enjoys boating, skiing, fishing and reading. Some advice Mr. Gross would like to give his students is, “Be yourself, explore careers, avoid drama and choose to be successful.”
