Anyone out there had a problem with Hickman County High School Principal Philip Jacobs or Director of Schools Jerry Nash? I'd like to hear your story.

i had problems with Mr Jacobs when he was over transportation. Seemed everytime my child sneezed wrong he was suspending him and of course I couldnt get anything done.. So after having a problem with a psycho neighbor and in the process of filing charges I was explaining to the SGT that Mr. Jacobs could also vouch that this neighbor was nuts due to the things he has said to the driver, the SGT then called Jacobs on speaker phone. Mr Jacobs proceeded to tell him that my kids were trash, and all sorts of other outrageous things (b/c I argued with him over my sons suspension), not knowing he was on speaker phone. I immediately went to his boss and he never suspended my kids again, but I thought it was pretty crappy of him to talk about my kids that way..He called and apologized but it meant nothing to me.

He treats a lot of good folks like trash. I'm sorry that happened to you but it is typical of many stories I am hearing about his ways. Thanks for sharing your story.

Thank you for your response. The Tennessee Dept of Education needs to hear these stories so they can remove people like Jacobs and Nash from their thrones.

Certainly by now someone has gotten a taste of maltreatment by one of these two. Let me hear from you.

I'd say it's time unite and I'm willing to be there if somebody sets up a meeting. There is power in numbers.

I never had trouble with either of them while I was in high school, but Jerry Nash has always struck me as a sleazy individual who concerns himself with maintaining his career rather than the education of his students.

Last week during the storms we had I was surprised to hear the tornado sirens go off. Really early in the year I thought but, I turned on the news and sure enough Centerville was under a tornado warning. My first thought was of my two children in two seperate schools and in the back of my mind I am thinking all will be ok they drill for these. I start getting myself ready to take shelter as the sirens continue to sound off.

When my children came home from school I quickly became horrifed to find out that being responsible CIS sent their children into the hallways for protection. My child in the High School said they heard the sirens but did not dare move due to all the restrictions they now have. Then a teacher came into the room and asked my childs teacher is that the tornado siren? The teacher replied yes I thik it is do we need to do something. At the time of this warning my child was in the front side of that stupid school surrounded with glass windows. THE KIDS WERE NEVER TOLD TO SEEK SHELTER NO ANNOUNCEMENT OVER INTERCOM SYSTEM NOTHING!!!!!!!!!

I can understand people in Centerville not being too upset if a tornado warning is issued for our county and it is far south of centerville or even on the east end of county but if the siren goes off and the news says TOWN OF CENTERVILLE take cover it should be taken seriously. Was the fools in that school just to concerned with what kind of videos the kids might make while they are hovering in the halls for shelter????? Now everytime we have a storm I will worry do they have my childs best interest in mind. Hey if uttering a few cuss words is the worse thing my child does in high school then I consider myself lucky, profanity is never encouraged but every child will utter the words eventually.

I really think that some kind of suspension for Jacobs and Nash should be forth coming under these circumstances. There was no excuse for what happened. If a tornado hit there of any size that town would be devasted. They belive punishment should fit the crime so if the shoe fits lets see what happens to them. I have put up with a alot of crap out of that school system but I think we should get a petition together and have both of them dismissed.

Am I just being anal over this or does other people feel the same way????

How can you not be upset about the safety of your children in times like that?? Another poor decision by Jacobs that will be supported by Nash and nothing will be done AGAIN!!

Yeah, you all should attend HCHS at this time. It is basically a prison. They just now returned our breakfast time back, but class still starts at 8:00 instead of 8:15 like it normally did. Was in the school when the sirens went off and a lot of people were freaking out. Including my mom which texted me during school (oh Lord what a crime) and asked me if my brothers and I were alright. We lived through it but I wanted to punch Jacobs in the face for making no action whatsoever to the tornado sirens. We could have been killed. Forgive me, I needed to post my opinion.

According to another thread on this forum you make a written complaint with the complaint & details and then mail a copy to each of the board members. The board members addresses are located at http://www.hickman.k12tn.net/BOARDOFEDUCATION...

the original letter goes to Nash since Nash is the principal's next man in command

If those complaints go to Jerry Nash, they would probably be ignored, we need to complain to somebody above him.

Letters to the state dept of education bypass the director especially if he is named as part of the problem. The board doesn't seem like they are willing to do anything to rock the boat.

I have never heard so many outrageous things regarding 2 men in one year... they had the rape in the high school, they had the video that was made, and then they had the teacher who was suspended and is now suing the school district and it looks like he will win... All of the years of Jerry Burlison and Bert Mathis... this never happened over the whole span, much less one year.

What happened with that teacher who was suspended? The news didn't go in to detail about it.

I just read the article in the Times... but, apparently the way that Nash went about it was totally off-base. He was supposed to hold a hearing in front of the school board, which he did not. The article is pretty intriguing. A PI was hired and went in to interview Nash...and recorded it, unbeknownst to Nash. Later he was questioned about some things in the interview, which he denied, until he was notified it was recorded.... what a piece of work. It is really sad that almost the entire town operates like that.
