Richard Brown taught from 1970 to 1995 in Hendersonville city schools at all three levels — elementary, middle and high school. His specialty was special education. As an orphan he moved often and related to those students feeling like an outsider. He made them feel at home in order to better realize potential in class and beyond. Some 20 years ago, he coached HHS boys tennis to four state titles in five years.
