Tom Speechley, instructor of history, passed away August 8, 2011 while visiting his family in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Mr. Speechley had been with the college for seven years. He came to Dawson from Oregon and was anxious to teach history at the collegiate level. During his time with us, he was a favorite of many students. His seemingly gruff exterior was coupled with a passion for his craft--he loved to teach. A battered, spiral notebook crammed with annotations, torn sheets, and stained pages accompanied him to every class.
