Bob Whytock, a long time principal at Cony High School is recognized as one of Maine’s best officials. His career spanned four decades and ended with him becoming the Director of the Western Maine tournament.
A message from the Whytock Family from the Induction Ceremony:
We know Bob would have been appreciative of the recognition, even though he did not live his life with any expectations, as to receiving recognition. This fact makes today’s honor special. Bob lived his life always being there for us, his family first, and then in support of his passions to teach, to coach, to support athletics, students, co-workers, and to promote positive active recreation in day-to-day living.
Maybe during 4 years at Cony High School, you might have been coached by him, or you might be one of the many to have shared a basketball court as a player with him as he refereed, or as a partner official, or you were there too as Bob oversaw the Portland Class A and the Augusta Civic Center class B, C , D games for the MPA during his tenure at basketball tournament time. Or maybe you worked with him at Cony, or Belfast, or UMA, or at Spurwink. Maybe you were a member as he oversaw the Augusta Country Club, as President for several years. Or you had the blessing to experience his unique approach to discipline, honesty, caring, humor, and fair play elsewhere, either on and, most importantly off the court. However you, personally, may have known Bob, thank you for the recognition. We want everyone to know that today he would have been both humbled by the attention, and appreciative.
