Mr. Harry Burns, Honored at F.H.S.

Harry Burns, Long time Teacher at Fillmore High, and Jr. High to be honored this Thursday Evening January 30th at the Girls Basketball game with Santa Paula High. Mr. Burns came to Fillmore in 1975. Mr. Jerry Dann was the principal during that time at the Jr. High (as they called it back then), and he hired Harry. The previous year Harry Burns was a Jr. High Teacher in Sun Valley, CA and his Jr. High boys Basketball team won the Los Angeles City Championship. Harry loved Fill...more, and as it turned out, he was able to coach the High School Girls Basketball team the first year he was in town. Due to title 9, it was the first year of "Organized" Girls league teams. The previous years the girls played basketball in G.A.A. I'm sure many of you remember that. Three times he took the Lady Flashes Basketball teams into the C.I.F. Quarter Finals. During his tenure he coached Girls Basketball, & Girls Volleyball. He was the High School Boys Basketball coach from 1994 to 2000. In 1997 his Boys Basketball team won the Fillmore BB Tourney. First time in 26 years. His last year of coaching Girls Basketball, they won the Fillmore Girls BB Tourney. Please join us this Thursday evening as we honor his 34 years of Teaching and coaching service with Fillmore High, and Jr. High. He taught History for 25 of his 34 years with Fillmore Unified, and we are sure he would be pleased to see some of his past students, as well as athletes. GO FLASHES!!
