As I am sure many of you know, Lexington High School lost a beloved wife and educator during the Christmas Break. Hollee Muhl was the Principal of Lexington Middle School and the wife of Lexington Athletic Director, Kirk Muhl.

She suffered a head injury during a fall at the retirement dinner for their superintendent and was not able to be revived. She is survived by four children, ages sixth grade to two years of age. There is a benefit for her family this Sunday, March 8th.

Checks can be made to the Hollee Muhl Benefit.

You can also make donations at http://www.youcaring.com/memorial-fundraiser/hollee-muhl-family-support-fund/281309.

Any kind of financial help will be greatly appreciated.

Reggie Kumrow no longer AD/Head FB Coach at Paul Pewitt...
Monday, 23rd February 2015 - 6:36AM
I received an email this morning from Reggie Kumrow at Paul Pewitt High School, "I will not be the AD / Head Football Coach this next year at Paul Pewitt. My plan is to stay on as an assistant coach. This was all finalized last night."

Kumrow was 50-33 as the head football coach at Paul Pewitt, taking over from Brian Huckabay in 2008, including a 10-4 team in 2010. The Brahmas were 3-8 last season.

There are great men in coaching, Coach Kumrow is near the very top of class acts.
