Larry Drew Honored in the Valley News

Food packages are not allowed at camp. Please DO NOT send food or candy in packages. |

Our beloved Larry Drew passed away in December and yesterday the Valley News published a wonderful article honoring his life and legacy as a cross-country coach.

Billings Alum Joe Deffner is quoted in the article:

“He would look for kids who needed cross-country,” Deffner said. “He saw something in them, whether it was a difficult home life or just a kid who needed direction. If a kid wasn’t getting to practice on time, he’d talk privately with them after practice, ask what was going on. I can think of any number of kids he really made sure stayed around rather than just writing them off, the way a lot of people would. They were the ones where he’d say, ‘They need cross-country way more than we need them.

Margaret has asked that donations to the “Re-Grow Billings” campaign be made in his honor.
