Longtime teacher, coach remembered fondly by many

first_img “Mrs. Renfroe was very knowledgeable about basketball and she was a good coach,” Slaughter said. “Back then, we dressed in a classroom and she would go out while we dressed. Then she would come back in and talk to us. She was real even tempered and never got upset.”Mrs. Renfroe was an inventive motivator.“Sometimes she would pay us for every free shot that we made,” Slaughter said and added laughing. “One game, Dewey Botts won the game for us on free shots that she paid for.”Slaughter said some of his fondest memories are of the wonderfully sweet and wise woman who hauled a bunch of country boys around to ball games on her 52 Ford.“She cared about us and we knew it,” he said. “And, her caring didn’t stop when she left the classroom. When my son, Anthony, played basketball at Pike Liberal Arts, she came to see all his home games. She said he was like a grandson and she wanted to support him.”And, it’s for her commitment to young people and to sports that Mildred Renfroe will be remembered by so many and so lovingly and so fondly by her family.“Mildred was the best sister-in-law that anyone could ever have,” said Betty Hixon. “She loved her family and she supported us in every way. Her children, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her heart. She was there for every birthday and every special occasion and for every ballgame any of them played.“In June, she was at the ballpark for a tee ball game some of her great-grandchildren were playing in. She sat in a wheelchair to watch. It was one of the last games she saw.”Dan Smith, Troy Parks and Recreation director, said he has never known anyone to be more supportive of their family and of young people.“Many people have laid a foundation for the quality of life in Troy and Pike County and Mrs. Renfroe was certainly one of them,” Smith said. “She and her family have been involved our sports programs for many years. They put their hearts into sports have helped make our sports programs what they are today.”Smith said Mrs. Renfroe was a fixture at the Sportsplex in support of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and all of the young people.“I hope that many people will remember her and look to her as an example of how we should be there for our families and support the young people of our community,” he said.Mildred Renfroe’s love of family was evident in all that she did and her commitment to all of those whose lives touched her was evident in the way she cared about others, her granddaughter Shannon Hudson said.Speaking for all the family, Hudson said there are no words that can adequately express what Mildred Renfroe meant to each and every one of them.“She was the best grandmother in the world,” she said. “She was a great, great lady and we loved her so much. If I can be just half the lady that she was, I’ll be doing good.” Mrs. Renfroe taught science and boys’ physical education at Banks and also coached the boys’ basketball and baseball teams and her teams won a lot of trophies for the small county school.Mallory Slaughter of Brundidge was one of the Banks boys who had the good fortune to play for Mrs. Renfroe.“She was my favorite teacher and she knew how to get along with young boys,” he said. “I remember she said that to teach boys you have to learn not to hear everything that is said. She knew what to hear and what not to hear and we all got along fine.”Slaughter said some of the boys wondered about having a woman for a coach but they didn’t wonder long.

Next UpWilda Steele taught with Mrs. Renfroe at Banks School from 1960-80 and said one memory stands clear.“Mildred never said one negative thing about a single soul,” Steele said. “She was one of the kindest, most caring people that I have ever known. She was just a good, good person and she was an outstanding teacher and role model.“She was not a dictatorial type person. She didn’t yell and scream but she didn’t have to. All of the students had a lot of respect for her. She was a fine person and I’ve never known anyone like her.

Board Certification program aimed at government lawyers is in the works

first_img October 1, 2005 Regular News Board Certification program aimed at government lawyers is in the works Board Certification program aimed at government lawyers is in the workscenter_img The Government Lawyer Section, with consultation from the Administrative Law and the Environmental and Land Use Law sections, is pursuing the first certification program aimed at government attorneys.Section Chair Pamela Chichon told the Bar Board of Governors recently the plan is before the Board of Legal Education and Specialization and could come to the board by the end of the year.The new category would be called the State and Federal Government and Administrative Practice certification area.“The government lawyers are very excited about this,” Chichon said.The new certification would end frustration for government lawyers who want to be certified, but can’t find another certification area appropriate to their practice, she said.Government lawyers practice in incredibly diverse areas, from prosecutors and public defenders to administrative forums to being general counsels, and are lawyers who practice in nearly every field of law, Chichon said.“We all basically have the same client. The government is our client; the taxpayers are our clients; you are our clients,” she said.On other activities, Chichon said the section is planning a repeat of its successful Federal Seminar from two years ago, and it will be held again in Washington, D.C. The April 19-22 event will feature special tours of the White House and Capitol, as well as attendance at oral arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court.The section is also planning a seminar in February on public records and another at the Bar’s June Annual Meeting on practicing before the Supreme Court.last_img read more
