Thanks to UAB soccer coaches for donating goals

Published 5:26pm Friday, January 27, 2012

Dear Editor,

I would like to give a huge “thank you” to Mike Getman and Justus Griffin, coaches of the UAB men’s soccer team, for donating two of their soccer goals to Jemison Middle School.

It is nice to know that they care about the kids in their surrounding communities. The students at JMS can’t wait to get out on the field and play. I hope that some of the soccer fans in the community will go see the Blazers in action next season. Show your support for a great soccer team and two coaches who cared enough for our kids to give us two soccer goals.

I would also like to thank Lawrence Mims and his family for taking time on a Saturday, in the rain, to transport the goals from Birmingham to Jemison. I and all of my students really appreciate you.

Todd Alexander, Calera
