Kufnerland Dedicated at HCHS

November 10, 2009


In honor of coach John Kufner serving 37 years coaching sports at Happy Camp High School, the football field was recently dedicated to him. After 30 years of teaching science and P.E. classes, John Kufner plans to retire at the end of the school year.

“John Kufner has been a driving force of the school long before he started teaching 30 years ago. This takes an amazing amount of caring and dedication to the students, the school and the community. The countless hours of practice, discussions, films, and meetings are going to go away, I have wondered what he was going to do with his spare time, said Alan Dyar, principal at Happy Camp High School.

Kufner replied, “There is always a golf course nearby.”

Coach Kufner’s focus on the 15 principles of pursuing victory with honor speaks volumes as to the measure of the man. He especially exemplifies the six core principles of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship. It’s what he is all about, added Mr.Dyar.

Special thanks to Kevin Harrison, Justin “Spanky” Markham, Ethan Cook, Seth Pine, Corey Barnett, and Brandon McCartney for making the sign. Also Mardee Tower, Charley Reed, Florence Peters, Jessie Camareno, Rio Lloyd, and Kyle Carney as sanders. Superintendent Mike Matheson congratulated Mr. Kufner from the Siskiyou Union High School District. Former principal, Jay Clark, also shared recollections of Coach Kufner’s influence on students of the past.
