Bert was one of a kind! I had the pleasure of growing up knowing him and then later as an adult working for him at Wabash! He was the same person no matter what setting he was in and a true blessing to those of us to have the honor and pleasure to know him and call him friend. He will be missed on this earth!

I had the privilege of teaching at Ouabache Elementary when Bert Nelson was the principal. He was always kind, patient, and just. He cared for the students and staff.
