    One of the best teachers ever at Feds Creek High School……I will always remember his kindness to me personally and to all the students at Feds Creek. Always greeted with a smile and a warm handshake. Mr. Sawyers was always available to help all of us who went to Feds Creek High School. He will be sorely missed but I have no doubt he is sitting at the right hand of God this very day!! I hope and pray I can be there to meet him when I die
