Whereas, after joining the faculty at Robert E. Lee, Mr. McCutchen quickly gained the respect and admiration of the students; and
Whereas, over the past thirty-four years, Mr. McCutchen has coached football, girls and boys basketball, and as athletic director, and estimates that his teams won about seventy percent of their games; and
Whereas, two years ago, the school expressed its appreciation for Mr. McCutchen by naming their football field, "Richard P. McCutchen Field"; and
