Coach Rich Johns brought message of respect to Fort Plain

Many staff members at Fort Plain Jr./Sr. High School said they liked the message of respect presenter Rich Johns spread to students at a recent assembly.

Johns, who recently retired from teaching elementary, middle school and coaching tennis at Saratoga Springs High School for 38 years, spread the “Act with Respect Always” to students in both Fort Plain schools. The goal of the program is to help build strong characters in students, and during his presentation, Johns speaks about the importance of respect in both the classroom and on the athletic field.

According to his website: “building a strong student and athlete now and for the future, with the incorporation of character education, is my goal.

Character education is a vital aspect we must bring into our daily teaching and learning environment. Developing a well-rounded person by stressing basic core values will help tremendously to maintain the integrity of the sport and classroom.”

Johns spoke to the students in grades 9-12 Friday, Jan. 11, and 4-8 on Monday, Jan. 14
