“There’s a lot of history here in this school. This school dates back to 1942 and is an addition to the first government funded school for black students in the city. I spent 35 years as a teacher in the school system… 22 years as a high school basketball coach. I was the third black head coach in this area.
I’ve been in Ft. Myers all my life. I’ve been doing all I can to improve the community.”
