If you saw today’s N&R insert page you might have noticed that the Guilford County Schools have named their Excellence in Education awards and one of our local Guilford County coaches has made the good list.
The High School Teacher of the Year award goes to Darren Corbett, from Grimsley High School. Coach Corbett is in charge of the Whirlies boy’s varsity basketball program and I believe he teaches English at Grimsley.
He has always been stong in the Academics, going all the way back to when he was a student at Southern Guilford. Coach Corbett’s dad is Don Corbett, the legendary men’s basketball coach, who spent many years on the sidelines at N.C. A&T State University.
Coach Corbett was at Page High School prior to moving over to Grimsley and while at Page he was the head JV Basketball coach and he was an assistant to head Varsity coach Robert Kent.
Major congratulations are in order for Coach Darren Corbett and his family, on receiving this prestigious award, and continued success in the classroom and on the basketball court.
