I know you're sick of hearing about walls, but there is one wall that celebrates unity and teamwork, and on Nov. 5, we praise two good men and put their name on the wall of excellence in La Crescent.

Mark Abraham and Mac Dahl are two men who love the Lancers and would fight until they drop, to defend and support all Lancer students and all on the Lancer team.

I think the committee did a great job because these men truly honor and teach us that loyalty to a school district is a noble path to follow.

All who read this know what these two have done. They have something inside where they are fine just being part of the team. They seek no praise but they both appreciated that students, athletes and staff knew what they did and talked about it often to others.

They both are great examples of finding a belief system and dedicate your life to a cause -- the cause of the Lancers. What a wonderful choice.

Mac is gone but his presence will be there. A one-in-a-million character whose values you knew without asking. We have been blessed to have both.

If you can attend, contact the district office or John Steffens at the elementary school.

Darrel Collins, La Crescent
