Emerald Bay resident Ed Nixon is set to receive an incredible honor this week, allowing folks to remember his accomplishments as a high school track coach in Midland for a very long time. Nixon coached at Midland High School for 27 years, and was part of the school for 40 years. His cross country teams produced five state championships, and his track and field athletes garned seven state titles.  On Thursday, Midland will name their new, $2 million track in his honor.

"It's a very humbling experience that something like that is in your honor," Nixon said. "I'm looking forward to going out and seeing all of the guys that I coached, because they were the ones that did all of the hard work for me, that provided the honor that I'm going to receive."

The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, prior to the start of the District 3-5A track championships.
