Let it be known that David Barham who runs Acadian Prep so called Headmaster is a CROOK.Mrs Wyble who got hurt on the job in October of 2004 has never received any money from him.He did not carry any Workers Comp so therefore Mrs.Wyble has been paying everything out of her own pocket.Which means meds,doctor and going to the hospital.She needs back surgery and suffers daily.The case went to court three times and so called Headmaster David Barham lost all three.He owes Mrs.Wyble thousands of dollars and also owes her attorney.He has yet to come up with any money.How can he be allowed to run this school knowing what is going on.Shame on you Mr.Barham.You call yourself a christian. Where I go to church that's not a christan.Well if you want to read the whole story just go to google.com and type in Marcia Wyble an you can read the whole story.You might not be paying right now, Mr.Barham, but don't forget one day you will meet your maker and you will have to answer to him. Please excuse my grammar.

I heard that Acadiana Prep want's to change their school name.The new name will be Louisiana Prep it should be called Corrupted Prep.It won't hide the fact that David Barham is a crook.I forgot it's located in St.Landry Parish and the parish is ran by crooks.He is still getting away with what he did oh and the DA is Uncle Earl he won't do anything about the case.Cause why Uncle Earl has no BALL'S.This school should not be allowed to operate.They receive money from the State and didn't carry Worker's Comp.All the while Mrs.Wyble is still in the same shape.Going on almost 5 years now.She nor her lawyer has not received any money.This guy must be stopped and the school shut down.If i had a child there i would think twice about sending them back.

I went to acadiana prep my entire life. I was pleased with it until he took over the school. They wanted to make it a christian school but yet kicked out half of my class because they didnt want to play football. I dont think that is very christian like. Thank god the only thing that got me through that year was some of the teachers. Other than that I can tell you I was very disappointed. Needless to say my little brother was moved from that school to Opelousas Catholic. I would never tell anybody to send their kids to that school.

I was a coach there at the start of school this year(2009) and was planning on being a part of this great transformation of Acadiana Prep to Louisiana Prep. The place was and is a joke. It is a shame David Barham can run a school like the way he is. The students only have 1 HS teacher and she isn't certified to teach. The acting principal has a degree from a trade school as a dental assistant or something like that. They do all their class work through the Louisiana VIrtual School. It is sad there. We were going to make this a true boarding type school. I had some great basketball players willing to come in and participate there but Barham, who gets hundreds of thousands of dollars a year by former players Michael Clayton and Rufus Alexander is too tight to spend and use the money although he takes several personal vacations a year. He swears he helps kids but he doesn't. He lies and takes advantage of kids, takes them to all these college visits in the summer then they end up at a JUCO. He is a terrible man. I left in late August because some kids were smoking marijuana and he was told I knew about it. Which was totally false. So I left with 3 players from the basketball team. He still owes me over a 1,000 dollars, although he got me like everybody else because I didn't sign a contract. He is a joke and that place is a joke. I thought it was a good place but not no more. I knew it was fishy when he had me teaching history and all I have is a GED and a few college hours.

Join the club I can't even estimate the money he owes me. I was the one injured at Acadiana Prep in 2004. Went through all that legal stuff. And still has not received a penny from him nor have my medical bills been paid. I wish there was a way contact the people that are and were affected by this man. Maybe we could come up with something to put him where he belongs.

I am so sick and tired of hearing about judging people! Mr. Barham was already judged-**IN COURT***. He lost and refuses to pay. It's easy for you to come on here and preach because you and your family are not affected by his actions. What's wrong is wrong no matter what! What ever happened to justice!

Yea he is a joke. He has now combined the two campuses elem/middle school with the HS. It is going down hill. He has already lost 3 employees from the HS and he only had 5 in the first place.

David Barham and I have been friends for several years. I can attest to the fact that much like the rest of us he is NOT perfect. Not even close. That being said, all this hate talk is toooooooo much.

David is a Christian, and his daily walk in life proves this out. He takes in kids at Prep that society has already tossed aside, and tries to give them something better. The typical kid is African American, bad situation at home, no father figure, low income, cannot afford the tuition, etc etc....you get the picture. This is not opinion, but fact. He has a heart for these kids and takes them in knowing full well that most of them will at some point in time disappoint him. He uses athletics in addition to the classroom to teach them about the lessons of life (most of which you can't find in a text book) and attempts to get them qualified for college. He takes donations from the private sector to help pay for the students that can't afford the tuition.

I have a suggestion for those of you who do not agree with the way he runs Prep. Go start your own school and run in the way you want to run it. This is America after all. Good luck!!

David is fully aware that he will in fact be judged by God one day for ALL of his actions on this earth. On that judgement day, his works will stand on their own. Its not for you or me to decide or judge.

And now you know the "rest of the story"....Peace.....PH2

I know everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect. However,I also know that running from your mistakes is not the answer. Using money and power to get your way is certainly not christian like. I think the most frustrating thing is that Mr. Barham flaunts his christianity and at the same time hurts people. He helps children then at the same time uses them to hopefully make money off of them later when they sign football contracts. That doesn't seem very christian like to me. If all he wanted was to help these kids then he wouldn't accept the money. How would you like it if you worked for Mr. Barham,got hurt on the job and found out that he had no worker's comp insurance to take care of you. Not only could you not work, but also needed surgery to correct the injury. You had a husband and 3 children to take care of. You have no choice but to sue him. He loses the case, is ordered to pay for medical bills, mileage, salary, penalties and REFUSES to pay. Yet he holds his head up high and calls himself a christian. PLEASE explain to me what is christian about that. Was he really thinking about the mistakes he has made and about the pain he has caused that family. This happened 5 years ago and that family is still suffering tremendously. You can defend him all you want but he will have to answer for this one day. Praise God!

Catgirl.....While I disagree with most of your commentary, I do not wish to sit here a debate opinion with you. The common ground that you and I seem to have is our belief that God will sit in final judgement. It is not your nor my job to do that. Peace.....ph2

Yes David does take in underpriveleged kids, yes he does try to help, but yes he does take advantage of them as well. He says he is all about the kids but tell me why this summer he left a kid in New Orleans at the airport, a kid that was living with him and was his responsibility?

We'll Mr. Paul Harvey or however you are, you not affected the way I was. Five years ago Oct 21 my story begin with David Barham. Yes he owes me for 5 years of my life, and medical bills and it keeps on rolling. I have 3 children who have had to do with out. But do u think it bothers David Barham. And yet he helps the black children who have nothing, look at what he done to my children. The black people need to wake up, he is using them to get rich once they become well known in a sport. Yes, he uses them. And then they give him money once they become successful.
