SOUTH BEND - There are more significant changes at South Bend School District than some chameleons offering colors in terms of teachers and athletic coming and going, curriculum revamps, building renovations, and yes, even a new track surface for the 2019-20 school year. South Bend Superintendent Dr. Jon Tienhaara caught the Herald up to speed and many of the transformations.
For starters, the athletic department will feature major changes. Tom Sanchez, Steve Lazelle, Gary Wilson, Manuel Rangel and Jim Bleecker are retiring.
Sanchez served as athletic director for several years and also was the head coach of the football team before retiring two years ago, and he also was an assistant coach on the girls' basketball team. Sanchez, who coached the Indians to the Class 2B State Football title in 2010, will stay on in his teaching position.

The mere privileges we indulge upon that came at the cost of blood, sweat, tears, and life itself. Men and women have died for our country so that we may live a life of freedom, a life earned for us, not given. It is our duty to honor them for their selfless sacrifice and it is also our duty to make sure their sacrifices are never forgotten." ~ by Jeff Clemens
