For more than three decades, Trish Nicholson has helped students realize their potential both in academics and athletics. The ongoing efforts of the longtime and much-respected Hugh McRoberts Secondary School teacher and coach were further recognized recently when she was bestowed with the prestigious Bill Goodman Memorial Award by the Richmond Secondary Schools Athletics Association.
An athlete herself, who has excelled in many sports, Nicholson is perhaps best known for inspiring and guiding many athletes and team to great heights in basketball and volleyball.
Time was also taken during the recent coaches banquet to acknowledge the efforts of Paul Eberhardt and Rob Brown, whose contributions extend well beyond the success their teams enjoyed on the field of play.
Mike Charlton, too, was lauded for his efforts throughout a long and comprehensive career that spanned several decades and included coaching success in a wide range of different sports.
Many coaching colleagues were presented with certificates in appreciation of milestone years of service in the school district, while Richmond teams that qualified for provincial BC School Sports and non-sanctioned championships were saluted—led by the McMath Wildcats, collectively presented the Bob Jackson Participation Award.
