Members of the Roane County Board of Education expressed condolences at the passing of former Rockwood Middle School principal Bill Thompson.
“I was fortunate to play ball for Coach Thompson,” Mike “Brillo” Miller said at Tuesday’s board meeting. “He was a great educator and he was a great coach, but the thing that separated Mr. Thompson was he was a better man.”
Thompson passed away on Sunday after a long battle with cancer.
He was 75.
