John R. Dillon

Special to the news

If you were to ask me to describe John Robert Dillon in one word, I would have to say “dedicated.”
Indeed, he was fully dedicated to educating the children of Morgan County. He was a teacher, principal and superintendent in Morgan County Schools for more than 40 years.

If you count the time he was in public and private schools, along with his time in college, you would find that he spent more than three-fourths of his life in schools.
