Vidor High School head volleyball coach Melissa Story and her team made school history recently when the Lady Pirates went to the playoffs for the first time in school history. Recognized by Good Cents Credit Union a few weeks ago for her outstanding efforts both on the court and in the classroom, Story was presented with $300 and a bouquet of flowers. That nomination came from her husband, who sees the hard work and time she puts in. Coach Shad Smith nominated Mrs. Story for VISD Employee of the month, saying, “Coach Story organized our beginning of the year Girls’ Athletic program with 140 students. She is a tremendous classroom teacher, and she has the volleyball team off to its best season in years, competing for a playoff spot.” Of course, they earned that spot and competed in round one of playoffs. Melissa Story also teaches business classes at Vidor High School.
