Joe was great. At one point he ran the Leadership Galveston program. He’ll really be missed.

Good tribute to Joe Huff III, John Wayne Ferguson! I remember when he first came to Galveston College. Thanks to for listing all of his accomplishments! I was a participant in his first Leadership Galveston class, with League City's Janice Hallisey.
For a short time, he even became a confidant for a short time.
However, he was not GC's first public information officer. That distinction belongs to Helen Spangler circa 1972. I served as her Work/Study office assistant for about a year. Great part-time job and I got to attend so many college events and functions in that capacity! I wanted a public information career, but there were no college courses open at the time.
