An old agage says, â€śPersistence pays off.â€ť It did for Cindy James.
James waited and finally got her dream job at her alma mater â€” coaching the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers basketball team.
â€śIâ€™ve been trying to get back to Talihina for years,â€ť said James, who is taking over the reigns from Will Seymour who is going to become assistant boys basketball coach with the Golden Tigers. â€śI graduated from there in 1974. Iâ€™m really excited about it. Iâ€™m looking forward to it. Weâ€™ve got some good girls, and I think we have a lot to look forward to.â€ť
