When this year's varsity football team were sophomores the Huntley football program was going under. Coach Terry Awrey came in and brought the team to their 4-5 record for 1989. Though the Redskins lost their final game of the season, 20-6 against Burlington Central, they are proud of the excellent performance by all this year. Self-esteem and a positive self-concept are the emphasis for Coach Awrey. As they say with the pros— "wait until next year!"

Yes, Kelly Baird is his name! Mr. Baird resides in Antioch with his wife, Debbie, and .'5" children. To put that .'i.ore plainly - two sons, Tom and Mike, and another child on the way (due in April). The new principal's career, prior to Huntley, includes: teaching students at Grayslake Jr. High, building and selling small storage buildings, owning a produce business, teaching convicted murderers and burglars at Lake County Jail, coaching various sports teams, and teaching Jr. High students at Lake Villa. His career has definitely not been dull. Mr. Baird said he likes where he is now most - with kids. Being principal gives him the opportunity to be an administrator, but still be a part of the students' day. He visits classes all the time - takes part in what the kids are doing. He listens to what they have to say. Those parents who have already met him, and teachers also, are quite taken with him. Huntley Grade School is very lucky to have a man like Mr. Baird. We certainly hope Mr. Baird stays here for a long time to come.
