‘Langlois Lives On’ Celebrates Beloved Teacher/Coach
Our students and staff honored a beloved teacher and coach, Cynthia Langlois, at “Langlois Lives On” Night during a recent girls’ basketball game.
Ms. Langlois was a longtime educator in Fayette County Public Schools and a pioneer for starting the HOUSE system at Tates Creek Middle School. As a Language & Literature and Creative Writing teacher, Ms. Langlois had a knack for getting students to come out of their shells and express themselves through their writing. She was also a great supporter of the drama and arts programs at TCMS.
Along with teaching, Ms. Langlois coached volleyball and basketball. As a former collegiate basketball player, teaching the fundamentals of the game was a passion of hers. She also taught her student-athletes the importance of conditioning, health, and nutrition. Most importantly, she impacted these young women both on and off the court and in the classroom.
Unfortunately, TCMS lost their dear friend in May after a long illness. Ms. Langlois fought the battle bravely and fiercely and became an inspiration to many. Her impact on our students, teachers, and staff will never be forgotten. To honor Ms. Langlois, our staff and students wore their “Langlois Strong” shirts and pink for breast cancer awareness. Teacher and former head girls’ basketball coach Kendra Schadler, along with Administrative Dean/Athletic Director Mike Webster, presented Ms. Langlois’ daughter with a commemorative plaque. Former players Ashton Harris and Chloe Byrd also spoke at the ceremony.
