To my mentor, my teacher, my coach and my friend;
Thank you so much for coming to Scotland School and changing so many students’ lives especially mine. Your support and caring nature will never be forgotten.
In your first year of cross country coaching in 1969, you took a group of kids who couldn’t run and molded us into champions. The team went undefeated from 1969 to 1973. I still have memories of you riding your motorcycle on the cross country course to make sure we were working out.
Tom Eagle – Class of 1972.
