Fall of 2017 there was a school shooting at Freeman High School, the school where Anna Willard graduated from, the school where her mother works as a school nurse and where her baby brother attends. Shocked and devastated with this traumatic event she found comfort within the strength of the Freeman community.

Inspired by the teachers and the community, Anna Willard interviewed Kenny Davis. He is a retired history teacher, high school coach of various sports, and is still kicking it as a referee for basketball ranging from 6th grade to the NCAA as he enter into his 60’s the prime of his life. He shares his wisdom as a teacher and coach, and how to age well through strength and stretching programs. In this interview you will hear a vast amount of insight to live your best life. . . things like . . .

“Even though there are times as a coach you’re not be successful, you are successful”

“No matter what you do you have to have self-discipline in order to be accomplished”

Throughout the conversation they dove into the affects of the school shooting and how to move forward from the devastated event within a small community, how to manage strength and courage, and how to process the trauma of death through one’s health. We shared the critical role he played in my life during my sophomore year of high school and how he still plays an important role for Freeman students.
