Forsyth Superintendent Dr. Jeff Mingus and Leslie Wyman, Managing Director for the White River Valley Historical Society, display the school’s 1972–73 State Championship banner. In the background, hidden behind black sheathing, is the “Fishing with Charlie” exhibit, which opens on Thursday, November 12th. The exhibit features Charlie Campbell, who is not only known for his fishing talent, but also as the basketball coach who led Forsyth to win the state championship in 1972–1973. The banner will be on long-term display at the WRVHS, along with other memorabilia from that season. The grand opening of the exhibit, open to all, will begin at 10am at Community Presbyterian Church, next door to the Society on Main Street in Forsyth, followed by a ribbon cutting and refreshments.
