Jeff Spielman Memorial Gymnasium
To Hancock students, parents, and community:
On Monday, June 22, 2020, our community lost a beacon. Coach Jeff Spielman began his teaching career in 1970 as our elementary P.E. teacher. By the time he retired in 2012, he had left a path that countless students and athletes had followed. Coach Spielman's desire for his students to always give their best guided his teaching, whether in his classroom, on a track, a football field, or a basketball court. During his notable coaching career, he accrued the records for the best record for a season (at 21 wins), the most wins (at over 250), the most playoff victories, and the most titles. Coach Spielman's distinguished accomplishments culminated with an induction to the Washington County Sports Hall of Fame in 2016. Coach Spielman was a mentor to many over the years, and we remember him for his compassion, motivation, and dedication.
To honor the legacy of Coach Jeff Spielman, we ask that you support our petition to Washington County Public School to rename the Hancock Middle-Senior High School basketball gymnasium, the Jeff Spielman Memorial Gymnasium.
