Martinsville remembers John Wooden

Martinsville native John Wooden, a man of value and virtue, was honored Sunday at the First Christian Church in Martinsville.

Wooden made Martinsville proud, not just by what he did, but who he was.

He played his high school basketball there, winning a state title, before moving on to play college basketball at Purdue.

UCLA also held a tribute yesterday for Wooden, where he won a record 10 national titles. John Wooden passed away on June 4 at the age of 99.
