We selected Phil for his many years of remarkable service to our community. He has always been the type to go above and beyond in order to help teach, coach, and support others. He was a track coach at Hoquiam High School for many years, and continues to volunteer after “retiring” a few years ago. Recently, his involvement and commitment to Family Promise of Grays Harbor has been extraordinary, and has contributed to their massive success and graduation of three families! It is for these, and countless other unsung reasons that Phil was selected for the Hoquiam Hero award. We wanted to thank him for the positive contributions he has made on behalf of youth as well as our entire community.
