Students and staff at Wausau East High School on Friday honored retired principal Brad Peck by immortalizing his familiar slogan on a wall at the school.

Peck, who retired earlier this year after spending decades in the Wausau School District, coined the saying, “Once a Lumberjack, always a Lumberjack.” To honor him, those words have been permanently placed on a wall.

District officials surprised Peck, who spent 24 1/2 of his 30 1/2 years at Wausau East as the school’s principal, by unveiling the placement on Friday.
