What motivates you to coach Track & Field here at WLHS/JH? I love to keep track of an athlete’s times and
distances to see the amazing improvement over their 4 years in our program.
What is an “interest” or a “talent” that you have that most people would not know about and you are willing
to “share”? ____________________________________________________________________________
