A social worker in the Department of Community and Human Services, Mario Bailey was recently highlighted in The Seattle Medium, a local news outlet, for his stepping into the head coach position at Franklin High School. His coming forward allowed the students to play football this season, instead of possibly forfeiting after the original head coach had to step down.
He is quoted in the article as saying:
“When you’re a football coach you’re more than a ‘football coach,” says Bailey. “You’re like an uncle, a father, a best friend, a big brother – you’re all of that.”
Kudos to Mario for making a positive impact on youth and giving back to our community!
