Bonnie Pike is a Huntsville native and a graduate of Butler High School. She received her B.S. Degree from the University of Montevallo and received a Masters Degree from Western Kentucky. She has taught and coached at Bob Jones High School, UAH, J.O. Johnson High School, S.R. Butler High School, and Western Kentucky University. Bonnie is currently teaching and coaching at Madison County High School and Middle School. To call Bonnie versatile is an understatement. She began at an early age being involved in many activities. She was voted Best All Round in her junior class at Butler High School. She finished her career at Butler by being voted Most Athletic. (During the time Bonnie was in school there was no opportunity for interschool competition, so she had no chance to gain recognition for her athletic abilities, district or state wide.) Armed with her physical education degree from Montevallo, Bonnie began a career in coaching. She became one of the strong pioneers of womens interscholastic athletic competition in the State of Alabama. She was the first womens coach at UAH for basketball and tennis. She started the first volleyball, basketball, softball and track teams at Johnson. Her teams were among the best in the area during her tenure at Johnson.(There was no statewide competition at this time.) Bonnies next stop was at Butler. She coached volleyball (Butlers first team), basketball, softball, golf and the boys and girls swim and tennis teams. Bonnies basketball coaching record while at Butler was 63 wins and only 6 losses, certainly a Hall of Fame style accomplishment. Bonnie attributes her drive to success to her mother who instilled in her the phrase, long before the U.S. Army used it, Be all you can be. She cherishes the positive role model and coaching that Buttermilk Johnson, Catherine Roper, and Rosalyn Donnelly provided her. She will never forget the West Huntsville and Westlawn boys who made her earn a spot in their pickup games.
