Students expressed support for P.E. teacher and volleyball coach Chris Kwan today during the Spring Pep Rally after it became known that Kwan would not return to San Gabriel in the 2016-17 school year.
The boys and girls volleyball team wore black pants and white shirts to show solidarity for Kwan, in addition to flashing signs reading ‘#KEEP KWAN,’ ‘ONE TEAM, ONE DREAM,’ and ‘FAMILY STICKS TOGETHER’ during the rally. When sports teams were introduced, some captains thanked Kwan for helping and encouraging them in their athletic lives.
“[Coach] Kwan taught us that we are much stronger as a team. [He’s] an inspiration,” boys volleyball captain Tommy Liung said during the rally.
