TURNBULL VISITS GRADE-SCHOOL ALMA MATER

Gov. Charles W. Turnbull began a series of visits to territorial schools Monday with one he knows well: his grade-school alma mater, the Leonard Dober Elementary School.
His visit was well-timed: Extensive repairs were carried out over the summer on the roof, electrical equipment, bathrooms and a stairwell that had been condemned, according to a statement from Government House. "This year, everything is much, much better," said Dober principal Elise Warner.
Turnbull visited classes at the school, the statement said, encouraging students and teachers alike. He was presented with letters from students in the multi-age and second-grade class, thanking him for fixing their school, according to the statement.
"I want to give back to my alma mater in any way I can," he said, "and I want to encourage and challenge all residents who graduated from schools in the territory to do the same."
