HIGH FIVE AWARD! Awarded to Tammy Parish from Gary Hoover. Here is what Gary has to say about Tammy: "I'm passing this aware to Coach Parish. She is a great example of what it represents. Coach Parish befriended me very early on, offering her help and encouragement, and always has the time to lend me an ear. The "not my job" attitude does not apply to her. From taking a heavy trash bag across the parking lot to cleaning up after a sick student, she seldom needs assistance. The love and dedication she has for her students and ball team is obvious and the reason she is one of their favorites. Like myself, she will probably say she does not deserve this award by we all know better. Thank you Coach Parish for all you do for our school and the students!" Congratulations Coach Parish!
