How Crescent Influenced His Life

One of my poignant memories of Crescent was the leadership of former Headmaster Mr. Tansey. When I was in Grade 7, Crescent embarked on its first major fundraising campaign. They had an audacious goal of, I believe, $5 million and they had a “thermometer,” drawn in marker, outside the staff room door to record their performance. I thought they were crazy and that this goal was unattainable. Seeing Mr. Tansey run around the school, always with a smile, nodding to every kid he passed, while the thermometer level kept increasing until he reached his goal, taught me a strong lesson in leadership.”
