Coach Douglas was someone I thought of many times since she last coached me as a high school player at IHS. She lead us to victory and was a coach ahead of her time. She treated me differently and knew exactly how to inspire me. I truly respected her. I am sad I will never get the chance to thank her. I will keep her close instead. Thanks Coach...

I had the honor of being coached by 'Doug' for 4 years at IHS. She saw in me what I didn't. I have oftentimes reflected on that over the past 30+ years, digging deeper when uncertain, fearful, and or lacking confidence. Thanks for sharing your passion and motivating this once shy girl.   Jan Myers (Carr)

Coach Douglas I have never forgotten you and wished I could have told you what a difference you made in my life. You taught me how to be a team player and an athlete. You taught me how to play fair and hard and told me never to give up, but you showed me and many others how to be a lady, stand up for myself, and have integrity. Thank you for being in my life I love you! Giselle Garcia

Yes I fondly remember Coach Douglas! I graduated in 1984 from IHS, had her many times throughout....I think the first time i had her was 9th grade- Square dancing! HA!! YUP! we did that back then, LOL! She always had a great smile on her face would pleasantly say hi and remembered everyone. Great lady, she inspired many as she brought alot to the P.E. team at IHS. Thanks, Teresa Marley
