James Ewell Echols

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by J. Foster Watkins on July 10, 2012:

It was my pleasure to teach and coach Jim upon my return to Baker High School as a young educator fresh out of Georgia Tech. Reading his obituary allows me to conclude that Jim continued to perform beyond any reasonable expectations throughout his short life. While reading it, I was reminded of why I have devoted over 50 years of my life to working with students at all educational levels.
