Mr. Haynes was the first art teacher to ever really see anything of value in my art. For that I feel eternal grateful.

I remember waiting just to go to his class to learn and create something different. I still have some of my art work and a piece of art he created him self. He kept it real and cool. The last time i saw him was 2 years ago and he was talking bout retiring from Hopkins. I'm sorry to hear him leave but I hope his family stays encouraged and blessed.

Mr. Haynes was one of my favorite teachers at Hopkins Middle. He was an amazing teacher and not only with Art. He also taught life lessons, when you really talked to him.. when acting up in class he never had to get loud with you, to get you in line. Just a call of your name and and simple look... I really appreciate him blessings us all with his talent and love... Now he can paint the clouds.. Fly forever Mr.Haynes.......
One of your fellow Eagles

Mr. Otis was the catalyst that began my love for all forms of art. From music to film, drawing and painting; he showed me that flaws are only perspectives and that there is beauty in everything. He was a great mentor for us young men who lacked a strong figure to look up to and helped us not only understand but cope with our emotions and how to condone ourselves as gentlemen in society. He was my art teacher yes, but I learned so much more from him than what a classroom and curriculum ever could. Thank you for all that you have ever done for me and the rest of the Eagles you ever helped soar. May you rest in paradise, and I know I'll see you again. I'll be looking for your paintbrush strokes in the sky, because you definitely are a blessing in disguise!

I remember I had Mr. Haynes for Art in middle school. I remember him as a very helpful and kind teacher. One memory I have of him was when my mom and I was on our way home from school, we had a flat tire on Bluff Rd. Mr. Haynes stopped and helped changed the tire for us. That was more than 15 years ago, but I will always remember him for that and his teachings. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Mr. Otis you were such a kind, gentle and patient soul. Your love for your family, art, nature and animals was beautiful. Moving to be your neighbor at the age of 16 you watch me grow into a young lady and eventually a wife and mom. Thank you for letting my kids pet the bunnies, feed the fish worms and come over to pet Shiloh, I know she greeted you at the gates of heaven. Thank you always helping us watch our animals and always having what we needed when I rushed over and asked for it. You will truly be missed but one thing is for sure you and Doris raised one beautiful young woman, Kacy.
