A special tribute Roosevelt lost one of its all-time great teachers and coach late last month. Eula Cole passed away at the age of 86 in Scottsdale Arizona. A TRHS alum, Eula also was the first girls’ basketball coach at Roosevelt. About her coach, former Foundation member and 1979 alum Laura Leonard said, “I am proud to say that I had the privilege of playing for her for three years.” Read Eula’s daughter’s comments here.
