“He was a sweet kid who was loved by staff and students,” Waller said. “Josh liked to question what was going on in the world and had an opinion he was not ashamed to share in a respectful and thoughtful way.
“Josh stopped by the office last year after graduating from Marine Corps boot camp. He was wearing his uniform smiling from ear to ear,” he added. “His smile brightened up your day. He was so proud, and his teachers and I were also very proud of Josh.”
