Hello all of my fellow BET’s! It has been quite a while since my last post, so I wanted to update you on some cool things happening in my world.
As most of you know, from a previous post, I was named the Middle School and High School Cross Country coach at the beginning of this school year. This was quite a challenge for me as I had never coached any sports, save a season of church youth basketball way back in the early eighties. I really enjoyed coaching these amazing kids. I also had an awesome assistant coach in Austin Conner, so I think the season was a huge success. Next year, I think we will have even more kids running and it looks like we may be able to field a team large enough to compete in team meets.
This Spring, we are staging the musical Guys and Dolls at Culver Community Middle School/High School! I am once again serving as assistant director to our amazing director Diane Derrow, who leads this wonderfully talented cast of kids! We are so excited to have several returning players from last year, and a truly promising group of middle school kids that look like they will carry the torch with swagger for many years to come. So be sure to save the first weekend in March to come see our production of Guys and Dolls! I will post times and dates later in February.
I have also been asked to coach the Boys Golf Team this coming season. It is still unofficial, since I need to be approved by the school board, but I feel fairly certain I will be given the green light. This is the position I have wanted since I began teaching but thought it was hopeless due to the fact that we already had a great golf coach in Kyle Elliott. The fact that he is younger than me also made me think it impossible in the foreseeable future. But alas, he has decided to lighten his load a bit, and I fortunately am in the right place at the right time. I just hope I can work as well with the kids and be as good a mentor as he has been for the past fourteen years. Thanks so much for allowing me this opportunity Coach Elliott!
