Mention the name “Chet Forsh” in Douglas County and grandparents, parents & kids across the county will know exactly who you are speaking of. Coach Forsh has been a staple in the Douglas County community for over 45 years, as a teacher & coach, not to mention the numerous other titles he holds.
No award or acknowledgement could equal Coach Forsh’s value to the community, however, on Wednesday night a small gesture was shown as an attempt. The Douglas County Track & Field Championships, a competition amongst all five Douglas County High Schools, honored Coach Forsh for his hard work and dedication by naming the Championship’s Trophy the “Chet Forsh Trophy”.
Upon accepted the award, Coach Forsh’s humility and servant like attitude was on full display as he thanked those involved.
