Mr. Gross will be sorely missed in Salisbury. Though he was at the helm for just shy of two years at Salisbury, I've never seen a stronger advocate for the students of his distrcit and of public schools in general. He could manage the mundane operations on a daily basis and never lose sight of the ultimate purpose of the district, empowering our youth to become independent life long learners and community minded members of society. I will miss you Bob. All who listened to your words of wisdom and witnessed your deeds are more enlightened and will carry your spirit along with them.
