Dan PaceDan Pace (1934-2010) taught literature and composition in Edneyville High School starting in 1969, and in West Henderson High from 1979-86. He was a minister before finding his truest calling in the classroom and leading field trips to such historical sites as Colonial Williamsburg, Va. There, students “made connections between the development of the country and the development of its literature,” said Pace’s widow, retired Assistant Superintendent Dr. Amy Pace. Dan Pace also chaperoned students to New York City, for plays and other cultural activities. He once said he sought to be his pupils’ “catalyst” for reaching their potential.
