Many of you are probably already familiar with his face: as a football or baseball coach or maybe you have had him as a substitute teacher in one of your classes. This man has worked very hard for many years toward his goal of working as a teacher at Centaurus. To Vermillion, Centaurus was always the only option; as he said, “I am Centaurus, my kids went here, I wake up to the metronome each morning, for me there was no other option.” During his subbing career he wouldn’t work anywhere but Centaurus because he loved this school so much. Here is some background information to let you know a little more about him:

  • He grew up in this area (has lived here for 30 years).
  • He was a star football player at Fairview and went on to play in college.
  • He played baseball until his sophomore year in high school, but he wasn’t very good at it.
  • He owned a pizza shop.
  • He currently owns a landscaping business.

Also, Vermillion told me about all things Centaurus. First, we talked about why he loves our school so much. He said it’s like one big family here and no matter what we all work together toward a common goal. Next, I asked him how he would like to impact Centaurus, he wants to “help each student succeed.” Finally we talked about the football team; I asked him what he thought the team needed to do in order to have a great season. He told me that we have a great team this year, they just need to stay focused and stay “hungry.”

I got to spend some time in my day to get to know Vermillion better, I suggest you do the same because he is a wonderful guy with a big heart and a passion for what he does.
