Former Devil Coach & Player Thomas Bunch selected as 2001 Lincolnton Holiday Parade Grand Marshal.
The Grand Marshal is selected based on essays written by residents. In the winning essay written by Dr. Randall Edmunds, he characterizes Coach Bunch as "Teacher. Coach. Mentor. Colleague. Friend. In all of these capacities I have known and worked with Thomas Bunch. My most profound and vivid memories, however, are of a genuine and compassionate person -- a true southern gentleman, a devoted family man and Christian, a firm believer in and supporter of young people." Read the entire essay in the November 1 edition of The Lincoln Journal.
