In Memory

Paul Manning

 For those who remember Paul Manning, Basketball Coach and Athletic Director, he passed away this past summer. I worked with Paul at Fort Hunt and then at Reader's Digest for 30 years. He was a good man, and will be missed. RIP, Paul.

Paul Manning was an inspiring teacher and I felt fortunate to call him "coach" on our varsity basketball team in the 1968-69 season.  After leaving his teacher/coach position follwing the 1969 school year, he was offered the Student Activities/Athletic Director position at Fort Hunt.  RIP coach...

Mr. Manning was good to work for after school as the Athletic Director.  Learned a lot about the many different things going on after school, their interactions, and the 'work behind the scenes' to make them happen.  He once took the Basketball Concession stand cash and put it in a cash box and handed it and his keys to me to take to his office.  I had never seen so much cash before.  But, I remember to this day analyzing any temptation as 'I didn't have it 10 minute ago, I won't have it 10 minutes from now.  And nothing will have changed.'  Since then, never had any problems being responsibile or accountable for any amount of funds.  Good life's lesson.     Good memories from the Class of '75
