“A great man of God.”

“A wonderful and uplifting human being.”

“An awesome teacher.”

All these quotes are to describe one of my favorite people in the community. Jeff March has been at Immanuel for quite awhile serving as a chaplain, a Bible and U.S. History teacher and many other wonderful positions at the school.

He is a joy around our campus, constantly asking about student’s lives and encouraging them in everything they do. He also gives great spiritual advice and is constantly ready to share knowledge that is both uplifting and enticing to listen to.

Jeff March

I had an awesome time interviewing students about Mr. March. His kind and compassionate heart shows not only though his work, but also in the lives of the past students he has taught. Not one negative thing was said about him.

If you’ve ever been to an Immanuel sporting event you’ve most likely heard Mr. March’s voice over the loud speaker. He energizes the fans and keeps the entire crowd involved. His servant heart is shown in everything he does and says.

Mr. March was never one of my teachers, in a classroom that is. But I’ve seen all the great work he does around our campus and in the lives of our students, including mine.

When I was in 5th grade, he was my little league coach; he was so encouraging to not only our team, but to the others as well. His respect has been well earned within the community of not only Immanuel, but the entire city of Reedley.

God has blessed our city with the presence of Mr. March. His gift to the community and Immanuel Schools has been a blessing to everyone.

Thank you Mr. March.

Ryne Preheim is a junior at Immanuel High School, he enjoys acting, and improv comedy. He has acted for four years now mostly for the Immanuel High School drama program. He has lived in Reedley his entire life. He is the son of Paul and Candi Preheim and has three siblings, Mallory, Courtney, and Hayley.

I had 3 children graduate from Immanuel. Mr March was a great mentor, especially to my 2 boys. He’s a great example of the wonderful staff at Immanuel Schools. Wouldn’t you want your child learning from a teacher with these values? I did!
