Right at home: New LHS athletic director Bill DeWitt comes full circle
July 17, 2013
In Bill DeWitt’s mind, the word hometown doesn’t have to be defined by origins.

But spend a few minutes with Lawrence High’s new athletic director and assistant principal and his pride for the city and school he now calls home comes across as strong and sincere as his handshake.
