Don R. Rawlings
Don R. Rawlings, former Danville High principal, coach dies
Don R. Rawlings, 73, of Boone Trail, a former educator, died Friday at home of natural causes.
He was employed by the Danville School System for 35 year as principal at Danville High School and as basketball coach.
Jerry Boyd, who was assistant principal at Danville High from 1964-71, today recalled Rawlings' kindness to faculty, students and parents and dedication to providing the best possible environment for learning for all children.
``I'd like to have the big bag filled with all the kind things Don did for people. He did a lot of things for people that few people knew about,'' said Boyd, now an executive with Sellers Engineering.
``Don really and truly cared about kids. He also felt an obligation to tell some people some things they didn't want to hear but had to hear,'' he said.
Rawlings was principal at the time that the high school was integrated. It was a controversial time but Rawlings led a relatively smooth transition for the school and community, Boyd said.
``Those were tough times for all educators. But Don stuck to his goal of creating an educational institution for all kids, regardless of their backgrounds,'' he said. ``And that fit right with his overall concern for all young people. He cared about them, no matter who they were or where they were from.''
Rawlings was a member and past president of Kentucky High School Athletic Association; and member and past president of Danville Kiwanis Club. In 1963 he was a charter member of Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame. He was a former president of Central Kentucky Conference and in 1977 he was given the Kentucky Association of School Administrators Leadership Award.
In 1985 he was honored by Laurel County Schools for ``Devoted and Unselfish Service in the Field of Education.
Rawlings was a member and former deacon of Lexington Avenue Baptist Church; a graduate of London High School and Sue Bennett College; received a bachelor degree from Eastern Kentucky University and his masters from University of Kentucky. In 1976 he was named Distinguished Alumnus at EKU.
Born April 29, 1924, in London, he was a son of the late Robert L. and Flora Caudill Porter Rawlings. He was the widower of Irene Greer Rawlings and served as Navy petty officer first class during World War II.
Survivors include two sons, Gary D. Rawlings of Louisville and Kevin Rawlings of Verona, N.J.; and three grandchildren.
Services will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at Lexington Avenue Baptist Church by the Rev. Tim Noel. Burial will be in A.R. Dyche Cemetery, London.
