When school returns to session in August, it will mark the first time in 31 years that Kenny Tucker won’t be in the classroom or on the sidelines. Tucker began his teaching career at the old William James Middle School in 1981, was part of the faculty at the new WJMS in its first year of existence, then moved to Statesboro High, where he spent the final 14 years of his career. For Tucker, years of educating youngsters didn’t stop after the final bell of the day.
