As a student of GCHS, they do have favorites. mainly the athletes, they tend to do more to satisfy them then just the average student. Thats all Gate City is mainly about. They pick favorites, but I don't care. It's not going to help any of those people later in life.

i know that brent can be unfair with who he picks on but you have to be strict when your a high school principal. him being over-weight has absolutely nothing to do with how he disiplines students.

I will be the first to admit that you HAVE to have a name in GC to be somebody. If your not a athlete, then you might as well not even exist in the world of GCHS/MS principals. Now Mr. Ervin on the other hand is actually one of the best principals i had seen since i started in 7th grade. He doesnt know everything about everybody like the rest of them and he actually treated students like they were somebody..but as for Brent Roberts, ha thats a joke.

having a name in high school to get ahead just gets you ahead in high school, and then it's over. the majority of "athletes" i graduated with a few years ago are unemployed and on drugs. your "name" doesn't make you, you make you. abide by the rules and you don't have to worry about it.

Having dealt with Brent Roberts for most of my childhood education I think that it is best that he is in a position such as Principal. That man should be on the administrative side of education not the academic side. Not to call him stupid. My experiences with him taught me the meaning of phrases such as "Power Drunk." While playing football under him and observing him with other kids, I noticed that he was quick to yell. In my current occupation there is a lot of yelling but there are types of yelling that makes someone non responsive due to the fact that it is done in a very unprofessional manner. Meaning that it comes across as having the intention of lowering self esteem. On the other hand there is a type of yelling that I witness regularly that is very constructive. "This is how you screwed up and this is what needs to be done." type vibe. Brent Roberts always conveyed a very negative energy when doing his routine of yelling. Perhaps that is what happens when you are consumed with Gate City football and grew up under Harry Frye and can stand as an example of what the "scholar" above means by "The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree." He did seem to play favorites that I observed. However, I feel that "favoritism" was due to the fact that our age group were the same age as his children and many of us hung out with his son, Chase. The "favoritism" seemed to be more along the lines of the fact that we were the generation spawned by his peers in high school and he knew our parents. In one instance I was in trouble and in the office of the principal. Roberts told the principal "If you call home and tell his mother about this she will take care of it." and I would much rather have been subject to the punitive measurements of the Scott County Public School System. I do, however, want to point out the absurdity of the policy that the coaches must be teachers. During my time in high school, I found myself subject to teachers who could not/struggled to read and pronounce words such as "Indigenous" pronounced by my then history teacher/one of the football coaches "Indigneeyus." People are upset with the caliber of people that are teaching the classes but I think that the situation could be resolved by a change in policy. Get the illiterate people out and have them work real jobs instead of "feeding the minds of the youth" (with stupidity) and coach on the side. They are already putting in the extra time to coach. Why not get them out of a classroom?

Who is a hick? lol Cowbells and the horn, thats tradition? Are you butt hurt because you played division 1 teams like Twin Spring and Rye Cove that have twice as less students as you and still barely won? Did you expect to come to Gate City and beat us playing division 1 teams all year?

Pay no attention to the part that says I'm from Coeburn. I'm from Big Stone Gap and graduated from Powell Valley several years ago. My opinion of Powell Valley isn't much different. They're just wannabe rich people. I will say that blaring that train horn like you all aren't used to winning when a player is obviously injured is kind of asinine.

Your all's fans antagonizing Chris Kelly who is obviously mentally handicapped does nothing for your reputation.

Heh. I couldn't care any less if Gate City went 14-0 every year or 0-10 every year. It makes no difference to me how well the teams do. I don't have a problem with Gate City athletes. They're only high school students who are just playing ball. Nothing more. Nothing less. Most of the people who hate Gate City (and most teams in the area do hate them) hate the fans and not the athletes.

As far as I'm concerned,%80 of Gate City fans are redneck morons. It's just a fu.cking game.

If you want me to get started on Powell Valley fans and other Wise County schools, give me the word.

what does any of this have do with the leadership at the high school... harrassing the students on here is not going to help improve the leadership, pick on someone your own age....of course the students are going to get defensive and not to mention they are little immature. Your harrassing the wrong ones. Try calling the school board member that represents Gate City...District 4....Dont waste your time complaining to the central office, you will find no leadership there.

Brent Roberts is the best thing that has happened to Gate City High School. If students wouldn't act like the total fails they are, he wouldn't have to keep on them like he does. The students who hate him are the ones who are constantly in trouble and who are always giving him a reason to fuss at them. HE isn't the one kicking them out of school; THEY'RE kicking themselves out with their pathetic behavior. I have known Brent literally all of my life; I went to church with him for years, and he has never given me any trouble because I haven't given him the reason to. If you want to hate on someone, there's a worthless sack known as Greg Ervin who needs to thrown out the school system altogether and put under a rock for the rest of his life. He's completely useless, he's a liar who gets his kids through high school by abusing his authoritative position, and he's an overall prick.

I think that it is time that people really realize what is being put under the rug. I have seen pictures and read stories on a website from a GCHS student and am very concerned for the safety of the kids at this school. I also know that Mr. Roberts and Mr. Ervin are aware of this and did nothing to this student for writing stories of killing people and other things that are not normal for high school kids. The story that I read stated that the student would not graduate because she would be in jail for killing her parents. I find this very scary to know that my child goes to school with someone like this. I feel that it is the principal's place to protect out kids and something needs to be done. I wont mention the kid by name but I will give a little info to help maybe ID her to you so you can warn your kids to stay away from her. Her mother is an RN at Holston Valley and her father is an Attorney in Gate City. I know that they are good people but this girl has always had issues and they give her what she wants just to try and make her happy and trust me a lifetime of this has not helped her one bit.

I'm sorry, from what school did you get your psychology degree? Oh wait, you didn't. She has a very creative imagination, and frankly, I'm willing to bet she has a much higher IQ then your kid. Leave her alone. Or would you prefer everyone conform to your standard of "normal". Friggin' Nazi!

Oh well I guess we should just over look a child who claims to want to hurt other people until we have a mass murder sorry didn't think of that but I personally have known this kid since she was very young so I am not just going on something that I read. This from her is only something that has been expected from this child and I truly believe that she is capable of doing everything that she said. But the point of it is that the book she wrote in was brought to both Principals attention and they did nothing about it cause it would not look good on the school. Oh well do your job and protect all the kids not one. I don't believe that their is one thing normal about a teenage girl that would write these things but you believe whatever you want and when this girl is in jail the I will be sure to get on here and tell you thanks for helping he with her creativity!! So never worry that I will be doing everything to help other kids be safe and try and make sure that she gets the help she needs. Oh and by the way this family has been going to group therapy for a long time. So I would say that means there is a problem!!

Well my son isn't in high school yet but I went to gchs and I absolutely despise that place and I live in Weber city so when my son gets old enough to go to high school I will be driving him and picking him up from rye cove high school because there is nooo way I'm sending him to gchs. And I agree that they do pick/have favorites in theiir school. I've seen it happen with my own eyes.
