Every now and then a small person (and I mean small in character) finds himself in a position of authority. These people tend to use their positions abusively and at their own discretion. Nathan Chaddick, in his attempt to deal with an unfortunate situation at the high school where he is the Pricipal did just this. The derogatory language that he used to characterize several young ladies and a mother showed the world the power that he felt he had in his position. He forgot that his position is a public trust, but obviously the head of the school disrict did not. Good for the superintendent, but I would have rather seen a little more public discipline of the Principal and the faculty sponsor of the cheerleading squad, since the Principal chose to denegrate the young ladies on school newspaper in public.
And, I want to take a moment to praise Mollie Garrigan, Katy Rushing, Suzanne Choate, Harry Duncan, Hannah Frizzell and Nicole Wilson. They are the ones who stood up and told the truth on this, and they should be commended. I’m sure they will have a great future in journalism.
