I just found out that my school principal Bart Wegenke passed away today due to pancreatic cancer. Bart was one of the favorite people at that school. He was so nice and fun to talk to about anything, even things he knew nothing about. I’m sad I can’t say more in this tweet.

I send my heartfelt condolences to the family of Bart Wegenke and the Haslett Public School Community. I am shocked and saddened by his passing. Bart was a friend and mentor and he will be truly missed by all who knew him. RIP
My old principal, Bart Wegenke told me back in 2016 that he’d expel me if If I didn’t get my grades up above an F by April. When April arrived, I was still failing Math but Mr Wegenke saw that I was trying and chose not to expel me. You were a genuinely good guy. Rest In Peace.
