I vote for Perry County Elementary sounds good and is fair to all.
Why in the world would they name it JPA ? why not name it after one of these teachers that have worked in the old Dennis C. Wooton school for 30 years,,,,like J. M. Salyars?
I am surprised that they are not trying to name it

There is a lot of people that it could be named after that worked at the school. Merle Collins for one, Nadine Vanarsdall for another. They were deicated to the school and the students.

Thanks to all my fans for voting to name a school after me! I can't believe it. They love me, they really do!
I know that he did not post this because he has no FANS! The ones that voted for him were parents that got paid to go and vote.
agree

24 million dollar school with a 2 cent name !
Now that is such a true statement. They had three names to chose from. Just like the public elections, the third was created to pull votes from Perry County Elem so it would split the votes therefore given JPA the most votes.

Mr. A has been an extraordinary educator for many years. Although he has not taught traditional subjects such as math,science, or social studies; Mr A has used a unique approach to teach our children about the "birds and the bees". Mr. A has used technology in a way to educate himself on this particular subject, and for over two decades he has been gracious enough educate the children of Perry County about the "birds and bees" with his very own "HANDS ON" method.
I know our test scores on those stupid end of the year exams are not the best in the world(in fact they are essentially dead last), but we can thnak Mr. A for us parents no longer being obligated to have that dreaded pre-puberty talk with our children on the "birds and the bees". They have also been taught by "the best" on how to lie, cheat, bribe, steal, and illegally view child pornography without ever being prosecuted. If our children are to become experts on all these issues, then just maybe, they could also one day have a $200,000 salary and a $24 million school named after them.
Thank You Mr. A, for excelling in your role as master educator in Perry County. You truly do deserve to not only have a school in your name, but to also rot in hell.

I think it is a shame they would name the school after a man that does nothing to deserve it. I would like to get a recount, somewhere I think it was rigged to get his name out there like he has done so much for the school.This is a joke like he is. He needs to go like the name for the school. Time for a REPLACEMENT!!!! I sure didn't for for him and never would!! I wouldn't want his name even on my paycheck!!! That is just my personal opinion.
Oh please

You are 100% correct, Mr Amis while a teacher and coach at Buckhorn taught sex education very well. Sex in the gym with a student, taking a group of students, buying then beer and liquor and watching them have sex with female students in remote area's of Buckhorn. As the leader of superintant of our schools having sex with employees, having sex with potential employees before he hires them.Traveling to out of town school events with girlfriends. He school be named sex educator of the decade.

I was wondering how much kick back money Amis and Punkin got out of this? The land was purchased from the family of Mr Tim Crawford, the attorney that helped get John Pauls out of his legal troubles.

Bothers me because I thought JPA was a really nice guy, but if he allows this school to carry his name then I lose all respect for him and will no longer take up for him. Come on JPA... show some class and say thanks for the votes but I'd rather name the school after an Appalcahian hero.

To THANKS_MR_A

I think JPA is a joke and shouldve been prosecuted years ago, but you're crazy if you think a school board member makes a 200,000 dollar salary. I know for a FACT that they don't. And you know why he got away with the pornography, right? He blamed it on his young son. Even though there was all kinds of evidence that he did it. Perv!!

The naming of the school after John Paul is a dead issue. He is a bigger man than his critics! Read his email below that he sent to schools:

"A vote was taken at Dennis Wooton Elementary this week by parents and staff regarding the name for the new elementary school that is being built on Highway 80 to replace Dennis Wooton Elementary. I was very honored that John Paul Amis Elementary received the most votes but I must respectfully decline this honor. I am currently serving as Superintendent and naming a school for a person that is currently employed could lead to possible controversy and I don’t want anything to be done that could create an issue for this district. I am just excited that we are able to construct a new school that will help provide a quality education for many students for many years to come; that is the most important thing. I am in my 18th year as superintendent and we have been able to upgrade a lot of facilities during this time and there are some more construction projects that could be in the near future and I look forward to getting these projects started as well.
At our next board meeting I plan on recommending to the board that the new elementary school be named the “East Perry Elementary School” and let the students, faculty and parents at Dennis Wooton Elementary select the mascot.
We greatly appreciate the parents and staff taking the time to vote and I appreciate the people who called, e-mailed, texted or came by to offer congratulations on the honor I received. Again, I am honored by the results of the vote taken but it is in the best interest of the district for me to decline acceptance."

I used to work at DW and JPA was in there all the time, but he was usually huddled in a corner with Nadine vannarsdale, whispering. He came to the school 3 or 4 times a day,3 or 4 days a week. I really think they used to have something going on, because he ALWAYS talked to her and usually in private and whispering. I mean, come on, you have that much business at one school?And 3 or 4 times a week?
