Leslie Matthews Guestbook

Betty Mae (Kracke) Reemes


I was so sorry to hear about Mr. Matthews. He was the BEST high school principal there ever was. He really cared for his students, and, I can still see him walking down the halls of Vidor High School when he was our principal. I will never, ever forget Mr. Matthews.
