Recently, I heard a documentary regarding Mr. Bright on CBC's "World This Weekend", hosted by Lorna Jackson, who mentioned that she is also from Edmonton and was aware of how honored Johnny Bright is in that city.

I was really hoping the documentary would mention Johnny Bright as the revered Principal of D.S. Mackenzie Junior High School in Edmonton as well. When Mr. Bright died in 1983 after a massive heart attack, while undergoing surgery for a football injury, he was at that time the current Principal at my school. I was privileged as a student to be a part Mr. Bright's Memorial Service at the School. I was asked to read the Eulogy in his honour. I remember being given a rose to take up to the stage with me. I still have those dried rose petals that I have kept safe in a beautifully carved wooden box for the last 22 years. The memories flooded my mind and heart as I listened to the documentary and showed my husband the rose petals that I have kept all these years in memory of Mr. Bright. He was an instrumental person of support in my life. I was 14 years old when he died. It is sad that the time we had with him was brief, yet he has provided a lifetime of positive impact for me and many others in such diverse ways.

While I was a student, I experienced a violent incident at the school. Mr. Bright was very supportive, kind, gentle and understanding when he would speak with me about what happened. He validated my feelings and experience with incredible respect and understanding. I remember looking at him thinking "how could it be that a person with so much power (not to mention his immense physical strength and massive stature) could comprehend how powerless I was feeling". I will never forget how much he helped me in such simple and supportive ways. He is remembered by me first and foremost as an incredible person with a big heart.
