SPORTS AND LEARNING CENTER TRACK NAMED IN HONOR OF LARRY COLBERT

(LANDOVER, Md. – June 16, 2012)  The Prince George’s County Executive, the Prince George’s County Council, and the Prince George’s County Planning Board of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission honored Bowie State University Assistant Track and Field Coach Lawrence “Larry” Colbert with a plaque unveiling ceremony.
“Thank you to the staff at Bowie State University for the opportunity to expand my coaching abilities to the college level. Having this opportunity to coach alongside Coach Latimer has been a most rewarding experience and one that I will always treasure”, said Colbert.
Coach Latimer said, “It has been an honor having such a wonderful man of standard on my staff
as lead assistant coach. He is a man of excellence and goes far beyond the call of duty by doing more than others expect. He is one that maintains high standards”, said Latimer.
Mr. Colbert was a long time resident of Prince George’s County, and was recognized by the County Council in May 2011 for his “Exemplary Public Service” in the county over the years. His services included being an active member in the establishment of the Glenarden Track Club, a former track and field coach at Eleanor Roosevelt High School, and an assistant field house manager at the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex.
“Coach Colbert has long been a pillar of excellence in the local track community. His contributions to the track community cannot be adequately measured. So many individuals have benefited from his contributions, many of them directly and even more indirectly. He definitely deserves all the accolades presented to him. The BSU Athletic Department also joins in thanking him for all he has done for us and the community”, said Athletic Director Anton Goff.
