Mineola High School Assistant Principal Reggie Carter suddenly passed away in December of 1999. Despite the fact that Mr. Carter was in charge of discipline, he ruled with a firm hand but friendly demeanor that had the respect of everyone with whom he came in contact in his short time at the school.
