The Armstrong-Maggie Walker Alumni Club will honor the late Bill Christian at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 3, at Send-A-Chef Restaurant, 1303 Hull Street, in South Side.
The public is invited to join the group that is made up mostly of retirees. Alumni and non-alumni are welcome.
Mr. Christian is credited with shaping the lives of hundreds of young athletes as a coach and mentor through the Richmond Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities and as a teacher at East End Middle School.
“Just about everyone who ever played sports at Armstrong or Maggie Walker was influenced by Mr. Christian,” said Earl Guy, a member of the Armstrong High School Class of 1961.
Mr. Christian’s daughter, Wanda, will accept the award.
