I enjoyed lunch today with our new teachers…An extremely impressive group that is going to do a great job for our young people!

At my Rotary meeting, Ron McKie, the Head Basketball Coach at Camden High School, was the speaker.  He gave a great talk!  I particularly enjoyed his story about his first game as a a middle school basketball coach.  Although Ron has obviously had great success at Camden High School, including a state championship in 2009, he obviously understands the role that sports and all extracurricular activities play to support academics.


I have blogged before about Daisy Whitaker, a recent graduate of Camden High School, and her outstanding discus throw at this past spring’s state track meet.  I was pleased to see this morning that the State newspaper had named her the area’s outstanding 3A girl’s track athlete.  Kudos!
