Last June, the graduating class recognized athletic director Margratha Chambers by naming a new gym floor in her honor.
Chambers has been working at the school since its opening in 1991, and many teachers and students alike believe she has earned this honor completely.
“I don’t know if there is another person who deserves it more,” said Secretary Karen Mangum.
Chambers has worked at the school for 21 years and has been teaching students athletically, as well as academically, wholeheartedly every year.
“It was a surprise to me from the 2011 graduating class, and that’s all I know,” said Chambers.
When the students heard that the school was re-doing the gym floor, they decided as a class that they would dedicate it to Chambers on the day of graduation. The floor now reads “Chambers Court, Class of 2011” for everyone to see and recognize for many years to come.
