Donald Culligan left quite the impact on the Ithaca community as a teacher, coach and elected official. Achieving numerous high school coaching records and having a basketball court and street named in his honor will keep his name in the public eye, but Culligan’s true legacy will live on through the lives he impacted in more than 40 years of public service.
“To be a part of their everyday lives was very special,” Culligan told the Ithaca Journal in 2004. “I’m sure I got a lot more out of it than they did.”
