Tony Stewart Remembers Ray Stone

I wish to share my thoughts on the passing of my good friend Ray Stone. In 1970, I was interviewed by NIC Dean of Instruction Ray Stone and NIC President Barry Schuler for the opening political science position. Ray called two days later to offer me the position that begin a more than four decades of friendship. I served as chair of the NIC Division of Social Science for 14 years and during most of that time I reported to Dean Stone. When Ray decided to seek a seat on the Coeur d’Alene City Council, I became involved in that first campaign and continued to work in all his other races for council and mayor. We spent many hours together addressing political issues and most important of all we worked with other members of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations to promote human rights in Coeur d’Alene and the region. Ray was so proud of three very significant and special human rights ceremonies and events that took place while he was mayor. More here.

Question: What will Ray Stone be remembered for?
