Keith Richards is the principal at Salem Jr High. The funniest experience he had in junior high was when a kid fell asleep in shop class and woke up halfway through the next period.  He loves hunting, baseball, and vacations in the mountains.  Mr. Richards loves making a difference and believes the best place to do that is with young people in schools.
