Letter of appreciation from Wirt High School's athletic director

Coaches are also teachers.  The athletic director of Wirt High School, Dennis Martinson, wrote me a letter of thanks.  I was coach of the Lew Wallace High School girls' tennis team at the time.  Mr. Martinson wanted to thank me for taking the initiative to organize a region-wide girls' tennis tournament each year although I was busy with my own team.
