Former CHS educator, athletic director honored

May 1st, 2019

On the one year anniversary of his passing, Ray Lewis was honored at Gateway Park by the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department.

Ray Lewis served on the Clarksville Parks Board for 27 years and worked in the school corporation for even longer; he was hired in 1964 and retired in 1997. In that time, he taught high school math and worked as the athletic director. He was named regional Athletic Director of the year on two occasions during his career. During his time as an educator, Ray also oversaw the evening men’s basketball adult education program at Clarksville for many years. He passed away on April 30, 2018. 

At Gateway Park, the half-mile walking path around the little league fields was named after Lewis. Known as a lover of the outdoors and recreation, walking in nature was one of Mr. Lewis’ favorite activities.
