Coach Bill Thorn (Hon. ‘24)

Coach Thorn has carried the Olympic torch, survived prostate cancer, run the Peachtree Road Race 53 times, coached thousands of athletes over more than six decades (earning a record-setting 37 state championships), started Landmark Christian School from scratch, and raised a family alongside his wife of nearly 70 years, Patty. However, in Coach Thorn's own words, "I don’t like all this accolade stuff; I’m not like that." What perhaps better speaks to his legacy are the "Thornisms" he's left behind – lessons about goal-setting, persistence, and dedicated hard work that have guided his life and rubbed off on those he has coached, mentored, or crossed paths with along the way.

We look forward to seeing you at the Alumni Hall of Honors Banquet and Induction Ceremony.
