Bob King - Andrew Leong

Name: Bob King

Occupation: retired teacher

Age: 76

Hometown: Duncan, B.C.

Right now I am reading: the Frontier History of Edward Dewdney

I’m listening to: the Victoria Symphony

At least once everyone should: run a marathon

Most people don’t know I: did my driver’s exam with a three-ton truck at the age of 16

Proudest or happiest moment: having the Cowichan Valley Schools Heritage Society nominated for a governor-general’s award while I was chairman

Biggest fear: that Andrew would never include his former teaher in his famous column

If I was appointed king of the valley I would: build an elevated highway from Koksilah to Drinkwater

Before I die: I want to make sure a complete history of Cowichan’s decommisioned schools is properly recorded

Words I live by: you never know what you can do until you try
