    Nice picture of George Gale Stadium. I attended Northwest High and played varsity football from 1968 to 1970. I watched George Gale supervise the building of that stadium, including rolling sealer on the concrete bleachers. He seemed to always be out working on that stadium during practices and after school. He was our Vice Principal and a hard-working man.

    Very cool to know. I also attended Northwest High School, I went from 1975 to 1979. George Gale was the principal. I didn’t really have any interactions with him other than saying good morning and good bye. He always seemed upbeat and busy, never saw him frazzled, stressed or unkempt. Thumbs up for Mr.Gale.
