Mr. James Amen, a beloved teacher and coach, 1914-2001
Many graduates of Division Avenue High School's early classes often remember Mr. Amen as their favorite staff member. A physical education teacher and master baseball coach, he is fondly remembered by many of the "girls" in our classes because he reached out to just about everyone. To some of the athletes he coached in basketball, football and baseball, he was like a second father. A memorial garden has been erected in his honor behind the school with funds raised by some of his former students..
