St. Aubin could not be reached for comment as of presstime.

"We wish David the best and are proud of his service to our country," said Fazer.

In October 2008, St. Aubin was called to active duty and served a year in Iraq. His mission was to help train Iraqi soldiers so they can better provide security for their own nation. St. Aubin returned to Flint Bishop Airport on Nov. 25 and resumed his duties as principal in January 2010.

A former LakeVille High School principal, St. Aubin replaced long-time GHS Principal Kenneth Andrezjewski, who retired in January 2005. Prior to that he was a U.S. Army Reservist, who attended the Reserve Officer's Training Corps at Western Michigan University, and obtained a master's degree in educational leadership from Eastern Michigan University. St. Aubin, who serves as a drill sergeant, has earned the rank of lieutenant colonel over his 25 years of duty. St. Aubin's mission was to help train Iraqi soldiers so they can better provide security for their own nation.
