I felt very lucky to have Mr. Schick as the principal during my first years of teaching. He was so helpful and supportive and showed me how to be a better teacher. Sending my sympathy to the entire Schick family.

I taught under Mr Schick for 7th and 8th grade math at the middle school. I enjoyed all the time I taught at his school. He was kind and fair. I knew Jan at the time. This was back in the 70s. I taught Kit and Steven in 6th grade math. I want to send my condolences to Jan and the rest of the family. I am saddened by this news. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

I had Mr. Schick for choir at Marion-Franklin. I loved the musicals that we got to do as well as looking forward each year to the Christmas program. He worked so hard with us to get the best resullts musically out of us along with Mr Bittner. I have such good memories of being in choir and have had a love of music all of my life. You can help lead the angels in heaven in heavenly music now and I know it will be beautiful.
