The Soaring Eagle award recognized the four members of Schoolcraft’s home football “chain gang” – Richard Goldschmeding, Skip Fox, David Krum and Jeff Bell. All four have served the community and district in various ways, but of special note is the fact that high school buddies Fox, Bell and Krum have each served as a member of the chain gang for about 50 years.
Fox started on the chain gang after graduation in 1964. Bell came along in 1968 and Krum started in 1969. Fox and Krum were also long-time members of the Schoolcraft school board.
There was only one thing to say about that kind of dedication and Stitt summed it up: “That’s incredible!”
