We the members of the Board of Education will miss our co-worker and friend, George Breidenthal, who passed away yesterday morning. George has served on the Board of Education for 32 years. His passion for quality education and compassion for the students and staff in this district have been admired by many.

He has been a voice of reason, an advocate for the poor and a champion for student success in academics, sports and the arts.

We have appreciated his words of wisdom and unique sense of humor. He always did a fantastic job of making the students feel comfortable while he presented the "student of the month" awards.

George will be forever remembered for his kindness and love to family and friends in this community and beyond.

Dr. Evelyn Hill,

President Kansas City, Kansas Board of Education
