On Friday night, Sept. 8, 2017, McCallie dedicated the recently renovated team meeting room to longtime McCallie employee, coach and former athletic director Bill Cherry.
McCallie’s sports team meeting room in the Sports and Activities Center is located in part of the old Davenport Gym. Affectionately referred to as the Cage, it has been used as a weight room, a classroom and a team meeting area throughout the years.
Prior to Friday’s home football game against Knoxville-Web, the Cage was officially named “The Bill Cherry Team Room” at a reception honoring Coach Cherry.
Coach Cherry has served McCallie School in many roles for more than 40 years. Primarily, he worked as the school’s Athletics Director from 1973 to 2008.
Last year, the Bill Cherry Team Room was renovated through generous gifts by members of McCallie’s Athletic Council, and it is now a beautiful and fully-functional meeting room for the Blue Tornado athletic teams.
