I challenged you, my readers, to come up with persons in public life who demonstrate in everything they say and do a commitment to ethics and integrity. We now have the first of what, I hope, will be many submissions. It concerns our own Rodney Rey. This is what my contributor had to say:
As Principal of ALHCS, he was in my opinion the Principal with the most integrity and of high moral standard. He was the one Principal who could be relied upon. His word was true. His language was cordial. He did not avoid conflict. He once sent me home because my skirt was too short to teach. And he was right.
Now he's back in my corner as a PS Education and he has that aura of integrity still. He is always friendly, cordial, reasonable and straight. He makes me want to perform up to his high standard. Isn't that just what a superior should do, inspire you to go just that extra mile because you know he does the same?
