To the family of Ms. Curt. I have fond memories of Coach Curt at Lexington High School. Its been many years since my days at LHS and graduating in 79. Coach Curt was the perfect coach and gym teacher. Compassionate to the sporting skills of anyone in her class. whether talented or not so talented - Sandra Curt was always fair and encouraged the students continuously push themselves to excel without making them feel self conscious - All gym teachers should exemplify the teaching characteristics that Coach Curt embodied. After losing my father suddenly this past January as well - I can relate to your families pains and I pray that Coach and my dad - Michael Jr - are in heaven playing tennis or having a jam session for everyone to enjoy - God Bless Coach Curt and your family - Rest in peace coach - we will all miss you. Sincerely - Michael Kalajian
