Congratulations Coach Parker
Unpublished

Congratulations Coach Parker and staff, the team, and fans.
I understand Waynesboro was nearly empty tonight because 4000 fans went to the big Dance and gave great support to the Bears.
Coaches Parker, Dye, and others are great leaders. And it showed tonight.
I am sorry Parker left Laney. He did a marvelous job there.
