In an interview conducted in summer 2012, Dr. Waltrip said of his time at Glendale, “Glendale Community College was an instructors dream - everything was brand new. We were lucky that our college…got most of its original buildings as permanent construction. We were so fortunate …everything was clean and beautiful. It’s a beautiful campus and a beautiful location, extremely pleasant place to work.”

“I consider it an outstanding if not the most outstanding educational institution in this country,” Waltrip continued. “It’s been a pleasure…to work [at Glendale] these many years. I’m now retired, enjoying retirement but not as much as working with our district.”
