Christ Harris
Pirate Football For Life

My cousin works at the courthouse in Pikeville. She said that Chris Harris makes negative comments about Belfry Middle School all the time. The latest is that the Middle School Football State Championship that my nephew is a part of is as Mr. Harris says, "A Joke". His reasoning is that the team had to pay to enter. I'm confused, did the other 200 teams across the state not pay to enter and play. Also, as a constituent of Mr. Harris' District of Pond Creek, "How did paying the entry fee help us beat the Louisville schools and those ranked above us like Greenup, Corbin, Mason and Martin Counties?" My family and I have always voted for Mr. Harris and have always felt he was a good man, BUT I want people to represent Belfry. If Pikeville or Pike Central had won a State Championship the parade would still be going! So why Mr. Harris are you taking away from our kids accomplishment? I now hear that when his kids went to Southside that he and his wife were very negative towards the school too. Maybe we should vote for someone from Belfry and loves Belfry. Or at least vote for someone from Pike County or even Kentucky. And by the way Mr. Harris I looked online and KHSAA requires all schools to pay to participate in High School Athletics. I don't think that makes our two High School state championships any less special. I don't understand this political strategy at all. I know all the people in my holler are a bit taken back by this. I really don't think my cousin is lying as she has always been for Mr. Harris. It saddens me to see people always trying to tear down our schools and community. We all aren't rich or have big jobs but we love our small town.

I voted for him before but never again they do not like the school system here and have made numerous comments about it. Guess cause his wife can't get a job at BHS

I heard him say out of his own mouth that BMS was far from Kentucky's Best. I was shocked!!! Both of my children attended Belfry Middle and I absolutely loved the school. Mrs Meddings and Mrs Chafins were great! It sickens me to hear an elected official put down our schools. I had always had great respect for Mr. Harris until this. In the same breath he said that the school only worried about athletics and championships. I do not feel this is correct. Ms Mia May taught an Academic Class that was extremely challenging and my children also took Spanish and Algebra II. As far as I know BMS is the only middle school around that offers such challenging classes. Maybe the Mingo County School system would be a better fit for Mr. Harris' family.......and maybe he should run for office in WV while he's at it!

Prince Christian Harris of the Pond Creek Principality has said the following things to numerous people:

1. BMS Football Championship was a joke because they had to pay to get in the tournament;

2. BMS had to pay for their Blue Ribbon, that it was fake;

3. BMS students' test scores were altered to make them look better.

Keep in mind, his wife ran for Site Based Council and received three votes (one was his and one was hers I'm sure), that's when his criticism of the school began. He needs to go. He's not even a Pirate.
