2014 MVP ~ Marissa's Valuable Person

Marissa Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the receipient of the 2014 Marissa's Valuable Person Award is Lee "Coach" Schulte. Lee Schulte started his career at Marissa Grade School where he coached basketball and baseball. He then taught PE/Health and served as Athletic Director at Marissa Senior High School between 1964-1996. At Marissa Senior High School, he coached baseball, basketball and volleyball. He amassed over 1,000 victories in these three sports and won a State Baseball Championship in 1986-87. He was also named Class A Coach of the Year that year. He has been inducted into the Freeburg High School Hall of Fame, McKendree College Hall of Fame, Illinois High School Hall of Fame, Greater County League Hall of Fame and the Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame. Coach Schulte, with the support of the entire community, built one of the best baseball facilities in the area. The field was dedicated in his name and is called Schulte Field.

Lee "Coach" Schulte was nominated for the 2014 MVP by Michelle Black who stated: You see, the strongest, most effective people I've met don’t just care about the business or winning, but rather about the people in it and the people impacted by it. He was instilling in us a sense of personal pride and what it takes to be dedicated to a team. But you see the real team that he was preparing us for was not next week’s opponent, but the “Game of Life”. He was teaching us about passion. To live, breathe, sleep and believe in our passion, to believe in us. He was helping create opportunities and open doors for us. He believed in us. He made us see what we could be rather than who we were. Through all of the late practices, Saturday practices, “open gyms”, summer camps, the sweat and tears and yes sometimes curse words; he taught us what dedication and commitment meant. He was preparing us to get up when life knocked us down. He was preparing us that our dreams can come true if we believe in ourselves and work hard enough. He was preparing us for yes, “The Game of Life”.
