GREATEST MEMORIES OF NORTH HIGH
For me it’s a composite of the relationships I shared with students, athletes, fellow coaches and teachers , and administrators during my 17 years at North High. An especially joyful experience was attending the dedication of that great new gym to my longtime friend, boundless philosopher, and endless fountain of sage advice, Lloyd Williams. That, along with the chance to visit with many who positively affected my days at North made for a very memorable evening.
