I am a former student of Mr. Holston. I graduated in 1992. He is, without a doubt, my favorite teacher of all time. He took the time to know his students and genuinely cared about our lives. He enriched my love of history. Not only a great teacher, but a great coach and a great role model. Thank you Mr. Holston! Jennie (Stagnoli) Lenglet

I've had Mr. Holston twice since I've been in high school; once for AP Human Geography, and another for American Government. Mr. Holston is one of the most helpful and caring teachers I have experienced, and believe I will experience throughout the rest of my school career. Though his lessons are not easy, he strives to make sure each person understands the content of each lesson. He is one of the only teachers I have had that is more concerned about a student's understanding than their grades.

Carl. Good ol' Carl. Taught me everything I need to know about the United States government. He might be pretty right-winged, but very knowledgeable on the topic. In AP Human Geography, I learned so much about the world in general. His favorite words and phrases are "content, pen only, quiz, content, learn the content". Ahh, Carl.
Sincerely,
Slewis CMW '13

Taught me a whole lot this year. So what if he has republican values. There are teachers with democratic values and i'd prefer the republican ways.

He tends to be a decent teacher, but he shoves republican values down your throat. U'll hav a quiz or test everyday and have to grade them.... waste of time
