  • Thank goodness for volunteers

    After every track meet that is held in the athletic complex, Coach Danny Simpson always writes to me that he and Coach Robert Walker want to thank all of the parents and volunteers without whom the meet would have been very difficult to have.  
    This made me think of all of the volunteers that we have around our county in the sports world.
    Volunteer coaches come in many different styles.
