I was very sad to hear of the passing of Mr. McCullough. I was a 1995 graduate of McCullough High School and had the privelige of helping him onto the field of our Senior Year Homcoming game. During this time I was able to talk to him about many things and it made me very proud to attend the school named for him. Although McCullough is not the name of the upper high school anymore, to those students who gradauted before 1996 it will always be the name of the original and best high school in The Woodlands!

I was saddened to learn of the death of Mr. "Mac" McCullough from the obituary my mother sent to me. Mr. McCullough was the principal of Conroe High School when I was a student there many years ago. To this day, I am very proud of the education I received in the Conroe Independent School District. That education has served me well in the 38 years since I graduated. Under Mr. McCullough's leadership as principal, and later as superintendent, CISD maintained high standards which resulted in an excellent reputation that was recognized throughout the State. I was very fond of both Mr. McCullough and his first wife, Eleanor. (She was my English teacher -- and a very good one at that!) Please accept my sincere sympathy -- as well as my appreciation for Mr. & Mrs. McCullough's many contributions to public education and the positive impact that they had on the lives of so many students.

Fall 1975--I was an eager rookie teacher at Runyan Elementary. Mr. Mac was concluding his final year as CISD superintendent. He joined my class for lunch one day--teachers always ate with their students then--he sat on those hard benches with us, helped with the milk cartons, and seemed to enjoy his mac-and-cheese. I was both anxious and honored--anxious that the boss was there..."with me...my group...oh, dear!" and honored that the boss was there..."WITH ME...MY GROUP...OH,WOW!!" Over that year, I came to understand that that behavior was typical of him--that the children, and those who taught them, REALLY mattered to him...worth his time.

Fall 2003--I'm still in public education and have never forgotten the example he set for that first year teacher--give them your time. What a wonderful man...what a wonderful legacy--

Thank you, for just being fair, One of the greatest fears I ever experience in life was the fact that I would have to leave Booker T.Washington, and attend school at Conroe High. Well it went well very well, and because of you and your sense of fair play, I am in Washington D.C. an Ex.Officer with the utility telcom commission. Conroe High School set my life work into motion. I only hope who ever follows in your foot steps also see the need and the importance to educatate all children, each and every one of them.

I just wanted to express my deepest sympathy and condolences to your family

at a time as this and hopefully share a scriptural thought to bring some

comfort, the thought at Revelation 21:3&4 will help to console your family.

With Deepest Sympathy,

My prayers and thoughts are with the McCullough family.

Mr. "Mac" had quite a large family since all students at McC loved him

and enjoyed seeing him at the football games. My son, Michael, graduated

in 1994 and daughter in 1998. Courtney now is teaching at McC.

The Highlanders will be playing those bagpipes in heaven tonight!

Peace be with you all during this time.

I will always remember Mr. McCullough, because I graduated from J.L.McCullough High School in 1980. I met him once as a teen, and he was a very nice, gentle man. It was always great to see him walk the halls of our school. I was honored to be part of the first full graduating class and even though it is no longer a high school, it will always be a major part of my life. Therefore, he will always be in my memory. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

My mom and I got to know Mac at the Gathering Place. He had such a wonderful sense of humor and a winning smile. Over the last year he and Myrtle became very special friends. We are so blessed to have known him and to have spent wonderful times together sharing memories, activities, music,laughter, and great food. My Mom and I will remember him fondly. He was a great teacher and coach. I am sure there are many young and old who will remember his lessons not only in the classroom, but on the playing field. Mac, you will never be forgotten. We will miss you.

Linda and Faye
