Coach Finley

I believe Hoover is Blessed to have such a wonderful community and it is an honor for the City to be able to name the indoor complex after a citizen that had the highest morals and impeccable character. Coach Finley's lasting legacy continues to permeate our schools and the Character Award named after him is considered the highest honor. This is a quote from a teacher currently employed by HCS and sums up the pride in our schools and Finley's legacy beautifully, " I would like to send a thank you to everyone involved in this [Finley] committee. The Finley Committee and it's award program is one of the unique characteristics that sets Hoover City Schools apart from all other systems. Over the past 15 years I've had offers to teach at other schools but the core values and solid foundation of the Hoover system are what drew me here and they continue to keep me here year after year."

Grace: You did a fine job on the article about Coach Finley. Looking forward to when the Finley Center is complete and open about May. Perhaps you might do something related more in depth to that. Best Wishes.
