J. D. “Red” Waller

J. D. “Red” Waller, former coach of athletics at the Malakoff High School, was elected again to serve the schools in that capacity at a meeting of the Board of Trustees last week.

Mr. Waller, for the past year, has been a member of the Board of Trustees himself, but was forced to resign that position before being eligible to accept a place on the school faculty.  It was also necessary for Dan Gentry, veteran member of the Board, to resign by reason of kinship with Mr. Waller’s wife, the former Miss Elizabeth Gentry.

Mr. Waller was elected to succeed J. W. “Pepper” Martin, who did not seek re-election to the place.
