Siloam Springs football game at Harmon Field on Thursday, October 13, at approximately 7:15 pm (between 8th and 9th grade games, prior to 9th grade kickoff).

Mr. Conrow taught math at Woodland from 1969 to 2000 (32 years).

While he was teaching math, he also worked with the athletic department, sometimes as a volunteer.  Mr. Conrow was has had a tremendous impact on Woodland and FPS as a whole:

  • He started and coached the Woodland Cowgirl's basketball program in the 1970's.
  • He was a long-term track coach.
  • He was the scorekeeper for home basketball games, many since retiring as a teacher.
  • He was the announcer at home football games, even during retirement.
  • He watched his children and grandchildren at many athletic events.
  •  He is still in regular attendance as a fan at Woodland football home games.
  • It is estimated that he has coached, volunteered, or attended far more than 1,500 Woodland athletic events in his lifetime.

There will be a "Sit with Conrow" section marked off on the home side of Harmon field on Thurs night, Oct 13.   All former teachers, coaches, students, players, etc. are invited to attend. There will also be a "Pass the Cowboy Hat" opportunity for friends to donate to help offset health care costs for Mr. Conrow.
