Lassiter High School teacher and coach Jim Brown, a member of the Infantry, United States Army Reserve, was recently given notice of his deployment to Afghanistan. His last day at LHS was March 12.
Deeply moved by this news, LHS honored Coach Brown on March 9 at a special ceremony by LHS's ROTC where he received a plaque from Principal Chris Shaw. Following the ceremony, Coach Brown and LSH staff members enjoyed a cake decorated with an American Flag.
Capt. Bill Wilkerson, Capt. Lorenzo Cox, and Administrator Ashlynn Campbell coordinated the ceremony.
