  1. I taught John Perry at Snook when he attended the school. He was always the happy-go-lucky guy of the class. He kept the class exciting and for that I was grateful in many ways. He will be missed by his family and friends but we all have wonderful memories of a young man that left his mark on Snook Schools.
