Support Hank Leave a comment for Hank

Hank Curry was nominated by his colleague, Jenae McKnight.

Mr. Curry is a LifeChanger because of his service to students in the classroom environment, as a coach, and as a role model. Mr. Curry is a quiet and peaceful person.  While quietly working in the background, he helps to transform students' minds about learning the difficult concepts of math. He works collaboratively with his fellow co-teacher to provide challenging and interesting projects for students to use their Math and Science skills in the real world.  

Mr. Curry has contributed to his school's atmosphere by coaching the Boys Basketball Team for the past few years. He has provided a trusting environment for young men so they are willing to be themselves on the court.  The players enjoy working with Coach Curry and see him as a positive role model. Coach Curry has taken his players to games and colleges, and he has given them other opportunities to open their perspective on life. As a father of sons, Mr. Curry always keeps very high and ethical standards for himself, his players, and his students in general.  

"Overall, Hank Curry has proven his faithfulness and loyalty to our school by transforming students' lives for many years. Therefore, he is truly a LifeChanger," said McKnight.
