Modie Cox brings special message of hope, unity to LHS & NFHS student-athletes
A horrible upbringing and brief stint in jail brought Modie Cox to another important crossroad in life — only this time he took the path straight ahead and hasn’t looked back since.
Cox, a former LasSalle High School and University at Buffalo star athlete, gave an inspirational motivational speech to a joint group of student-athletes from both Lockport and Niagara Falls high schools at the LHS auditorium on Tuesday.
The motivational speech was spearheaded by Niagara Falls School Superintendent Mark Laurrie, who also spoke briefly to the group, along with Lockport School Superintendent Michelle Bradley and LHS athletics director Todd Sukdolak. Also in attendance were new LHS principal Dawn Wylke, Anna Merritt principal Mike Sobieraski and NFHS athletics director Joe Contento.
