As Rick and I talked about our spring Newsletter, our thoughts kept bringing us back to “March Madness.” Sports metaphors and sports as a learning, growing, teaching experience energize us and encourage us to aspire to greatness.
At Evergreen, we love March Madness and what it represents. In this issue we’re going to do our best to “connect the dots” on the characteristics of March Madness and how we experience them everyday in our professional lives.
We’re especially excited about our “Guest Q & A” which will feature Head Coach Gary Williams of the University of Maryland Terrapins. Gary is an amazing person. He embodies all the characteristics of a Champion. He is a young “65” (March 4th). When the day comes and “Coach” has taken his suits to the dry cleaner for the final time, he will be praised and recognized as one of the greatest coaches in the history of college basketball. It’s been almost 40 years since Gary first cut down the net as head coach at Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, NJ. It was his first head coaching job as he led the team to the state title and a perfect 27-0 season. Thanks, Coach.
