Audrey and Barent McCool served as guest speakers at the Lubbock Independent School District's 13th Annual Executive Leadership Forum Thursday.
The McCool's stressed the importance of providing the best education possible for the students of the Lubbock area. The McCool's spoke highly of their son William's education, at Coronado High School. They say he became interested in Science and Math at an early age, which helped him launch his career as an astronaut.
"One of his goals was to teach. When he retired from the Navy, he wanted to teach. So if he could be remembered through the education systems and the things the education world does, what teachers do to help children in science and math." said Audrey McCool, William McCool's mother.
The McCool's are proud to see William's legacy at Coronado remembered in the minds and hearts of students in LISD.
