I had many fond memories of Darwin Garrett as Principal, e.g. making repairs to the auditorium of the old TVHS, and hauling loads of rock off the mountain with his pick up truck to fill in behind the school. As long as I could make a "B" average, Darwin allowed me to take off school a half day about everyday to run the Port Royal Diary routes. I remember him going to the Point Service Station for a bottled drink that he would often carry in his back pocket. Darwin Garrett..was a very good man.
