He was nervous and a show of hands indicated that many students and teachers were also nervous Sept. 4.

“It is OK to be nervous,” Tammi told the assembled students.

Then he shared with students the theme for the 2012-2013 school year: Quest for Excellence.

Tammi told the students to close their eyes and imagine what they want to be when they are older. “All of these things you can do,” he said.

Tammi went on to define the words quest and excellence for the students before they left to continue the first day of school. “Today it starts,” Tammi told the students about their own quest for excellence.
