Ryan Williams was happy to help. The Pinkerton senior helped move some large plants from one location to another. He remembered his former teacher.
“I had him for a half study and he always made the class laugh,” he said. “I looked forward to it and I was sad to hear about him.”
Sophomore Josh Johnson said Cofrin was a nice man who always thought of others.
“He just helped everyone and it’s a shame he’s gone,” he said.
Junior Cameron Burke said he was happy to help the Cofrin family.
“I just thought it would be a good idea,” he said. “(Ms. Cofrin) has been through a rough time.”
Soccer players also headed across the road from Cofrin’s home to help her parents, Gene and Joan Fontaine.
Boles said his team has done many community service projects through the years. This one truly helped put things into perspective.
“They are a good group of kids are there was no hesitation to help Nancy when I asked the team,” Boles said. “I know we lost a day of practice and we have some very difficult games coming up, but this is life and soccer is a game.”
Boles said the past year has been tough on the school.
“But Pinkerton is a better place because of Bill and Ralph,” he said. “I miss my friends.”
