Coach Bill Wenning

Bill Wenning

From Michele Rawlins '96
The best coach ever is Coach Wenning! He coached Varsity Men's Basketball in 1996 and led the team to the championship for two years!!! I was the basketball manager at the time but I learned so much by sitting there in practice watching him instruct the young men! 

I am a principal now of my own school and from time to time I reflect on how hard he worked the men into perfection. 
At boarding school often times we spend our birthdays on campus away from family.  One year it was my birthday and we had night practice in the gym.  I did not know he even know it was my birthday and he lined the team up and made them sing me happy birthday suddenly in the middle of practice! I was so surprised and grateful that he thought that I was important enough to wish me a happy birthday. I realized then that Cushing was also my family!
He is the best!
