Letter: Coach is recognized for his athletes' dress code

Comment on this story

My husband is working with students at the junior high school in Joy who are in the Science Olympics program, and while he is inside working with them, I often sit in the car and read.

There are days when I am so impressed with many of the boys who leave the building at the end of class because of their appearance. They are wearing dress shirts and ties!

I have learned that their coach asks for this dress whenever they have an out-of-town game after school. He wants them to appear at their very best since they are representing their school.

I do not know who this coach is, but I think he deserves recognition and a big pat on the back for the values he is instilling in these boys. Wouldn't it be great if ALL coaches asked this of the players? It certainly brings a smile to my face as I watch these boys!
