Matt Rose started this petition to Hoosic Valley School Board

James Forbes taught several history courses at Hoosic Valley for 32 years. He has served as the cross country and outdoor track coach for Hoosic Valley for 39 years and has coached indoor track for a substantial period as well. Over the course of his coaching career, he has led teams to at least four Sectional titles in each sport, 22 runner-up sectional titles, and nearly every record currently on the Hoosic Valley record board was set under his guidance. In addition to coaching, Mr. Forbes has served several stints of varying length as athletics director, oftentimes when he was coaching three sports and teaching. Mr. Forbes is also the third longest continuous running coach in Section 2, an admirable feat in and of itself. Above all, he is extraordinarily well respected by his peers and student-athletes. In short, Mr. Forbes has impacted the academic or athletic career of many students to pass through Hoosic Valley in the last few decades. Therefore, we, the undersigned, petition the school board to name the school’s primary athletic field 'Forbes Field' after James Forbes as an enduring tribute to the lasting imprint he has left and will continue to leave on Hoosic Valley.
