Nice Memorial for a Wonderful Teacher and Coach

I was lucky to grow up in West Springfield, MA and attend the public schools there. I had many wonderful teachers, starting right off with Mrs. Hefferan in kindergarten at McDonough school and all the way thru to my senior year. Mr. Jones was a physical education teacher at the high school and coach. He earned his accolades for coaching our Gold Medal winner Tim Dagget in gymnastics. Mr Jones passed away this summer and nobody in our town knew. The guys he coached thru the years have organized a memorial/tribute for him this weekend. Its a great touch and well deserved. Here is an article about it from the Springfield newspaper.
