Mr. Norton was my English teacher when I attended the old Williamstown High School. He was a great teacher who, with his patience and understanding, had a wonderful way with teenagers who certainly
tried that patience on more than one occasion !
RIP Mr. Norton and thank you for your years of service (military AND academic) !
