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