I have thought about Mr Cuba thru the years and said to myself I need to get in touch with him to say hello, catch up on the past 30 years, tell him what a mentor he was to myself and many others and being a part of my athletic success in high school. Such a great man. RIP Mr Cuba. Loved, loved, loved our very first Ne-Ca-Hi girls basketball team despite our 1-15 record. You kept us motivated and believed in us despite our record Condolences to the family.

Very good teacher, one of the best N.C.H.S teachers that I had in 1982. He taught me how to be a better public speaker and how to do speeches correctly He taught me the meaning of communications and public speaking. I surely and a lot of others will miss Mr. Cuba.
