JERRY  FRASIER

 BIOGRAPHY

 Graduated from Louisiana Tech in 1960 with a B.S. degree in physical education and English.  Took a coaching and teaching position at North Fulton high school in Atlanta, Ga. in 1960 and continued at North Fulton until retirement, nearly 34 years.  Taught English for l3 years, then  into administration for the rest of my tenure.  I returned to Louisiana Tech in the summers of 1966 and 1967 and completed my Masters in English.  I have fond memories of coffee nearly every morning with a mutual group including Coach Pat Nation who was there working on an advanced degree.  I later completed an EDS degree in administration and supervision at Georgia State University and the University of Georgia.
During my time at North Fulton, I coached football, basketball, track, cross country and soccer.  I was fortunate to have been a part of eleven state championship teams,  eighteen region championships, coach of the year honors twenty times, twice, Southeastern United States coach of the year, nominated for national coach of the year twice.  Because of  loss of students in the early 90's, North Fulton closed and I took early retirement.  I was a part of the original group of 5 in 1963 that  founded the Atlanta Track Club an  international known for the summer road races.
In 1964, I married Sheila Roberts and Atlanta native.  Joni was born in 1966 and Britt was born in 1968.  Both live in the Atlanta area.  My two grandchildren, Hannah born in 1997 and Evan born in 2001 are a joy to my life. Today, I spent my time as an unpaid baby sitter, enjoying music( I love those young vocalists, Josh Groban and Michael Buble' doing standards),  and working in the yard, a hobby I begin to appreciate in high school as I admired Jeralyn Shipp's father growing camellias,  all  I expect to continue for many more years...     

Jerry Frasier graduated from Minden High school in 1955; All-State Football 1954Most valuable football player in 1954; Basketball 52-55; He was elected class officer in 1953 and again in 1954. He was voted cutest boy in 1954 and class favorite in 1955. You will also find those pictures and write ups in the Hall of Fame and under Class Favorites on this site.

Jerry also has fond memories of his only sister, Shirley and her three sons all born in Minden. Two still live there. Monty Banks and Marty Banks who writes a column for the Minden herald as well as others. Mickey Banks lives in Shreveport. Marty has attracted an audience with his Bayou storyteller column. Mickey was born in 1959. Marty in 1966 and Monty in 1968.

JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS, 1953-54 SCHOOL YEAR
The boys always wore blue suede shoes on Thursdays. Had Mr. Grambling taken the picture on Friday they would have been wearing Q boots or fruit boots. How do you like the plantation ties the boys are wearing? The pants may have been purchased at West Brothers or Holidays Dept. Store. This picture was taken at the track field on McIntyre Street. From left to right are:
Treasurer - Roy G. Baggett, Vice President-Jerry Frasier, Secretary - James McCabe, and President - Charles Lewis (20 Dec. 1937-10 Mar. 1976).

I know this story is true because Roy G. told me so.
