My Students

I am privileged to teach exceptional students in sixth, seventh and eighth grade in a rural town in western North Carolina. My students are hardworking individuals, who even though they face many obstacles, give their very best daily.

I am blessed to work with the very best students.

I am also a track coach and football coach. Not only am I able to help students with their academic progress, but I help to instill valuable life lessons through sports.

My Project

The students that I coach are in need of three game time footballs. These balls match a specific standard that is required for competitive games. These footballs will be for competition use only to make sure they remain in a game-ready state.

The student athletes that I have the privilege to coach always give their best during the games.

In my opinion, they should have equipment that matches their efforts. By having these new resources, the athletes that I coach will have the necessary tools to compete at their highest level during games. Thank you for supporting our wonderful football athletes.
