28: From Tim Collins,Superintendent Hastings Public Schools
29: "Approximately sixteen years ago I was a rookie superintendent in Blue Earth, MN. Randy gave me a phone call and said that he would be willing to meet with me at any time to go over any questions that I might have about the position of superintendent. Randy Grupe, through his mentorship ability, provided a clear distinction of dedication, commitment and professional integrity. Randy went out of his way to foster this professional relationship, which turned into a friendship that will last forever. I could also talk about the days when he was a coach at Wellcome-Memorial and I was a player at Henderson...and we would beat his teams all the time!!!!"
30: "In working with Randy for over 10 years, Randy has always had high standards when it comes to the best interest of the MCW School District. Through the years, many decisions were made and his professionalism has always held true. A quality that has benefited everyone. Personally, I have come to know Randy and feel honored to consider him my friend. I wish him continued success in the next chapter in his life." | From Gary Janssen, MCW School Board Chairman
31: "As Board chair of Sherburn/Dunnell, and then MCW for 9+ years, I had the rewarding experience to work closely with and alongside Randy Grupe as the new school district was shaped as we know it today, chiefly through the efforts of Randy's direction and foresight. His countless hours, untiring devotion, and integrity as superintendent led to the improvement of the district and is evidenced by the successes in life of the students that have graduated from Martin County West Schools. On a personal note, Randy and I became good friends, enjoyed many district achievements, and had a lot of laughs along the way during my time on the school board." | From Dr. Eldon Madison
32: From Darrin Strosahl Superintendent Foley Public Schools | Consumate professional. That is my description of Mr. Grupe and would accurately describe his professional influence on me as a young administrator. Thank you, Randy, for your guidance, encouragement, and friendship.
