Tim Harless gets a surprise retirement gift

After 31 years of service, Tim Harless, Greenville Street Department Supertindent, will be retiring. Tim, an avid UD flyers fan, was presented from friends and family a Red Golf cart detailed with UD flyers emblems and colors Friday night at the Fair. Roosevelt Chapman a former UD Basketball player was on hand to present Tim his retirement gift. Roosevelt Chapman amassed 2,233 points during his four-year career at the University of Dayton. He currently holds the career scoring record and was a three-time recipient of the White-Allen Most Valuable Player Trophy. Adding to his list of many accomplishments, Roosevelt Chapman was named to UD's All-CenturyTeam in 2004 and UD's Hall of Fame in 1994. Chapman also ranks in the Top 10 on nearly every all-time career stat list for UD. In addition to Roosevelt,Kurt Huelsman from St Henry who also is a former UD Basketball player was on hand for the occasion. As one of the most team-oriented players to wear a Flyer uniform, Kurt Huelsman was a leader on both ends of the floor. Offensively, Huelsman is a skilled performer that enjoyed his most consistent season as a Flyer during his sophomore campaign. After being held scoreless in his first three games, Huelsman tallied 200 points thanks to 53 percent (77-of-146) shooting during that span and scoring in double figures in eight games. Huelsman was the only player to start every game in 2006-07 for UD and started all games in 2007-08, as well as 2008-09.

Tim, is the son of former Mayor Jack Harless and has two sons, Shawn and Bill and two grandsons, Michael and Conner. Tim is a Cincinnati Reds and Bengals fan where you can see him at games for UD Flyers, Reds and Bengals throughout the year. Congratulations Tim on your retirement and thank you for your dedication and commitment to the City of Greenville.
