A movie released last year about Waldorf College (Forest City, Iowa) alumnus Kent Stock is available on DVD.
The Final Season (available from Amazon) stars Sean Astin as Stock. Currently principal of Oak Ridge School in Marion, Iowa, Stock had been named head baseball coach in Norway, Iowa, in 1990—the final season before the school closed and consolidated.
Up until then, Norway had won 19 consecutive state baseball championships.
The movie is about a town losing its identity, tradition, progress, team spirit and more. Stock serves on the Waldorf College Alumni Board.
