Albany, NY – DAILY LESSONS: INSIDE WESTERN GUILFORD HIGH SCHOOL
DOCUMENTARY SERIES, THE HOME TEAM -
Ah....you can smell fall in the air. Temperatures are cooler. The
leaves are changing color. That of course means it's football season.
A ball game at Western Guilford High School in Greensboro, North
Carolina was once the only place to be on a Friday night. Western
was the heart of a tight-knit community that turned out in force for
school sports. Dramatic growth in the area has transformed the
school and the community. But the athletic field is still a place where
close ties can be made. In this chapter of the series, we hear how
sports and education go hand in hand.
