In remembrance of coach Joe Pace, student-athletes from Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s 2021 league championship boys varsity golf team played a round of golf on July 24. The members of the team wrote Pace’s name on each golf ball to pay tribute to their beloved coach, who passed away on July 23 after a courageous battle against cancer.
A dedicated member of Elwood’s teaching staff for 22 years, Pace served as a math specialist at Elwood’s James H. Boyd Intermediate School.
“Mr. Pace helped to support a generation of Elwood students and was highly regarded by all who knew him. He was a true gentleman, dedicated to his family and the Elwood school community. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and cared for him.”
