Barb Fleming’s parents.
fondly remembers her parents dedicating their free time to taking tickets at
any South Adams (SA) high school sports event. Katie was a teacher’s aide in
the SA math-science department for 30 years. Dick was at SA so often to help
Katie that SA hired him as an employee in maintenance. Katie was also a Girl Scout
leader and Sunday school teacher.
Richard was a member of the Cross Community
Church. He retired from CTS Corp, Berne and engaged in farming. He was an avid
South Adams athletic and I.U. sports fan.
Dick, a retired farmer, was so well known and loved that he was
recognized with the South Adams Outstanding Fan Award. As the result of this award and their
involvement, this scholarship will recognize SA students that have been
involved in sports.
