Yearbook Dedication

May 3

The 2017 Flintonian is dedicated to Dean Gann, who has inspired many young boys to become Christian men. The hard work and dedication he has put into deaning and teaching for the past six years is proved by the love and respect shown him by the boys. He is always willing to talk, and never seems too busy to make time when you need him. In addition to deaning, he has taught Health, PE, Personal Fitness, and coached boys' basketball. Many seniors even were taught PE by Dean Gann at OAS. It is extremely admirable to all that Dean Gann keeps everything under control despite having a building full of boys to take care of, along with being a husband to Jenny and a father to Caleb, Addison, and Nolan.
