They have a 14-month-old son, Landon. Beth is a physical fitness expert and a former soccer player. Wild was hired after a lengthy and determined multi-state search. Previously he was the offensive coordinator at South- ern Lee High School in Sanford, NC. This will be Wild's first head coaching opportunity. +, ,' Coach Wild has been hard at work doing all the, right things," said W&L Athletic Director Mal- colm Lewis. "His planning is long term and he is quickly building relationships with players, col- leagues and the community in general." "What I like about him is that he is a character guy," Lewis said. "I firmly believe that he is going to make his players into better citizens and we often forget that that is our main mission." Wild, who played running back and linebacker in high school while growing up near Auburn , NY, has a bachelor's degree in physical education from SUNY in New Work and a master's degree from West Virginia University. Wild has been offensive co- ordinator for the Southern Lee Cavaliers in Lee County, NC for the past two years. He also has previously served as an offensive coordinator for Stafford High School in Virginia. Wild is a physical educa- tion teacher who has served as a strength coach and also has coached wrestling and lacrosse.

Fifty-four parents and students met to meet the teachers and look at the work the students produced during the summer session. For the past 10 summers, ELL students have studied a different country and explore its culture, history, language, and cuisine. This year the students studied Mexico. The Montross Middle School food service department catered a Mexican feast with authentic Mexican rice and salsa. After dinner, students displayed their work !n the cafeteria where parents could freely walk around and look at the progress they made this summer. Additionally, the families received information about the upcoming school year and each child received a book bag filled with school su pplies and hygiene kits. Esmeralda Medina is the ELL/MEP coordinator. + Satur y, August 6tb (Ra $-unday, AUgua 7tb) + _ + -• Lots of Drag P.,acing Classes, Big Car Show, Drag RacingP~ities f• _ 0p. s. AJ.-mm . 10.,...
