Teachers are much more than just educators. They inspire, create, and encourage greatness from the people around them. Whether it’s investing in their students to strive for success or simply by instructing complex ideas that help them grow intellectually. They shape the lives of our community in grand ways and are deserving of an immense amount of recognition, more than what they usually receive. We would like to recognize one of those teachers who has positively influenced the lives of many, and has changed the community for the better: RHS Calculus teacher Don Friesen.

Teachers have a tremendous influence on the lives of our children, and yet they so seldom get the recognition that they deserve. Now and then here at KRL, we like to focus the spotlight on one of those many teachers–this time it is on Reedley High School English teacher Jennifer Moore.

Just a few months ago, football season was electrifying the air at Sal Gonzalez field. People noticed the cheering crowd, the enthusiastic cheerleaders, and, of course, the players on the field. But what people may have not noticed is that mixed in among the players, coaches, water boys, and refs on the sidelines, there was a team of kids not at all focused on the score. This was the Sports Medicine Team, binding, wrapping, and tending to the wounds of the players who were injured during the game. Reedley High’s football season ended months ago, but that doesn’t mean the Sports Medicine team isn’t still hard at work.

The group is led by Randy Lepp, a talented musician himself. He can always be seen early morning on campus running around with a determined look on his face.

The Reedley area was first plotted by U.S. Army teams and contract surveyors around the 1850s. The area was like a giant magnet, drawing all kinds of settlers from all kinds of backgrounds. Some were farmers and some were tradesmen, but they all wanted a good place to raise families.

Teachers touch our lives in many ways–they inspire us, lead us toward a career we may never have considered, and help us learn to be good citizens of the world. However, seldom do they get the credit and recognition that they deserve. So here at KRL, we like to feature some of those amazing teachers.
