From the Superintendent
This year’s annual Spring Banquet will be held on Monday evening, May 17, 2010, at the Bridgestone Learning Center. We are very excited that Don Meyer has agreed to be our guest speaker. Coach Meyer was formerly the men’s basketball coach at Lipscomb University in Nashville, and has just retired from Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Coach Meyer is the winningest men’s coach in NCAA history and led Lipscomb to the NAIA National Championship in 1986.
In September, 2008, Coach Meyer was involved in a devastating automobile accident. During the emergency surgery that followed, doctors discovered cancer which proved to be treatable. Although he lost part of one leg as a result of the accident, the cancer very likely would have gone undetected until it was too late. Here is a story from ESPN about Coach Meyer’s accident and his return to coaching.:
In July, 2009, Coach Meyer was nominated for and awarded the Jimmy V. Award for Perseverance at the 2009 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.
Tickets for this event will be $125 each. Tables of 8 seats will be $1,000, or 10 seats for $1,250. Please call Terry Stubblefield at school to reserve your seats.
Our Open House last Thursday was very successful. Several families were in attendance, and all are seriously considering sending their children to Boyd.
Please remember that school will be closed this Friday, April 2, and will be closed all of next week for Spring Break.
