The Memorial Service for W.F. Sullivan, known as Coach Sullivan, Mr. Sullivan or as W.F., a long-time, Chapin High educator was held in the arena on Saturday, January 26.  Tributes to Coach Sullivan were posted on Facebook, Twitter and many former students shared their memories of one of the most caring teachers who was “born to teach math” that education had ever known.

Gracie Derrick’s father was taught and coached by W.F. Sullivan.  “He would always say something funny.  He’d look out for you as long as you tried. He coached football and when he coached he yelled and ran and worked harder than the players on the side line,” said Ricky Derrick.

Trenton Haygood’s Aunt Betty Bell played on the Chapin Basketball State Winning team.  And his grandmother, Nancy Cannon,  played basketball in her Junior year and he was the coach. “It was his first year at Chapin. He was a fun coach except for making us run blood and guts. Coach Sullivan coached and taught using a positive feedback method and he was good! I wish I would have had him all my high school years,” Cannon said.

W.F. Sullivan’s Memorial was streamed live on YouTube. The Video can be seen below.
