Petition Drive Latest Thing In L-P Coaching Saga

Posted by wlpo on May 15, 2012

A petition is the latest approach by students who want a couple coaches to be renewed.

Baseball team members and some others are gathering signatures to keep Bill Booker on as head baseball coach and Jake Burke as boys track and field coach.  Both also are assistant football coaches.

Around 30 students protested with signs outside L-P High School Monday claiming that Booker and Burke have already been told they’re not being renewed as coaches.  The L-P School Board is expected to make personnel decisions tomorrow night.

Last month, the entire varsity baseball team showed up at the board meeting in uniform to show support for Booker.  No board action was taken.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
