Art Wilson took a chance and hired me as his High School Principal in Madison in 1989. I learned so much during the time we had together and he really pushed me to take that next step in becoming a Superintendent. He truly was a mentor to me and I will miss him. We had lunch about a year ago and I am glad we got to reminisce our years together in Madison and certainly talk Syracuse sports. Condolences to you Lorelee and your family.

Condolences to Art's family, I don't know them, but they have a special place in my heart because Art was my second cousin. Our maternal grandmothers were sisters. They came from Germany in 1902. They were Kuckhoffs.
Art had a very useful & productive life. I'm sure he will be missed by many people. Edwina Norton, Fayetteville

Art was a great community minded person who always seemed content, concerned about others, and happiest when he was helping someone out. You'll be missed Art. You've lived your life well and your work here is done. Godspeed our friend.
