Modie Risher
Mayor John Tecklenburg has declared today, “Modie Risher, Sr. Day” in the City of Charleston, honoring the life of the dedicated educator and coach.

An outspoken civil rights activist on issues concerning the African-American community,
Risher will also be remembered for his work with the youth of Charleston.

Both during his long time employment at the City of Charleston Recreation Department and Burke High school, he taught and coached countless youth about sports and health, but also about service and integrity.

Mayor Tecklenburg said, “Today we honor the life of a truly remarkable man. Our deepest sympathy is extended to Modie’s family. Our community is lucky to have experienced his commitment to service. He was a role model who created opportunity for and influenced the lives of so many people.”

In addition to the declaration of Modie Risher, Sr. Day, Risher’s life will be honored tomorrow night at the Charleston City Council meeting at 5 p.m. at City Hall, 80 Broad Street.
