Volunteer Viles

EugeneHumboldt Park School sixth-grader Aleaha Thomas nominated her debate coach Mr. Eugene Viles to be featured in the MPS Extra Credit.

A former MPS administrator, Mr. Viles coaches debate on a volunteer basis through the Humboldt Park Community Learning Center. “He has gone above and beyond the call of an educator and a coach,” says Aleaha. “He believes in each and every student on our debate team and knows we are smart enough to beat any school out there. He pushes us hard and sometimes we all moan and groan, but in the end we all know it pays off.”

Thanks for your dedication to MPS students, Mr. Viles!
