South Central High School will honor the memory of their late Hall of Fame Coach. The South Central School Board last month approved the renaming of the South Central High School Gym to “The Gary L. Shirley Memorial Gymnasium” in memory and honor of longtime coach and teacher, Gary Shirley. The renaming ceremony took place Saturday night between the JV and Varsity basketball games against Flora. Anyone who knew Coach Shirley was invited to join the celebration of his legacy.
Coach Shirley, who passed away in the summer of 2014, won over 500 games in his time at Kinmundy-Alma and South Central and was a member of the IBCA Hall of Fame.
