Terry Martin, the new Lee High football head coach, who was a freaking school bus driver, wants to spend $30,000.00 on new uniforms and $6,000.00 on new helmets, and why? The uniforms and helmets that we have, that we JUST GOT LAST SEASON... he "doesn't really like the color"!

FYI - the uniforms have already been ordered. Wonder how the "winning" programs at LHS feel about getting neglected in favor of the football program. Coaching at the high school is much more difficult than at the middle school level and success in the middle school ranks doesn't translate into success at the high school level. Guess we will find out if Martin is as capable as some believe he is.

I do hope this is just a rumor after all the people who work for the school system got letters saying their jobs might not be there for them and if it was, there could be a pay "cut."

Did anyone like the color?? Lol. Those god awful puke gold jerseys were an embarassment on the field. Don't know why they got those instead of staying with the white anyway.
And that is a lot of money, but it comes out of the football booster fund, not the county budget. So it's not affecting any teachers' salaries.

No, it's not a joke. The school board did not give TW $36,000.00 for new uniform and $6,000.00 for helmets. Can we say Title 9. Looks like there are going to be law suits everywhere. Spending this kind of money on something that is not needed while laying off teachers. This system is screwed up.

Haha title 9 is for equality of girls sports. So you can say it all you want but it won't do much good. How bout actually knowing what you're talking about before you get on here acting like a mr. big shot...

Someone please tell me this isn't coming from the school board!! My daughter who teaches is losing $200 a month! Her pay was cut. She is thankful to have a job, but this is outrageous!
Title IX

Title IX covers equity in sports but also tackles the use of money raised by booster organizations. So if the football team gets new uniforms then the fall girls sport is entitled to new uniforms and it really doesn't matter who pays for them.

Well that I can buy. The previous poster was trying to say that because lee high football team got new uniforms, then tw football team should get new uniforms. Both boys teams, so NOT title 9. You did your research, they did not.

Um hello, he has been the football coach at pms for several years now. And he's had tremendous success, winning 8 or 9 games a year. Only teams he's lost to that I can think of are gate city and the new harlan combined school.

So if someone is asked to donate to the football boosters, their donation may go to baseball????
Please help if Im not understanding this correctly.
. That's what I was told. about Band b money. That money from all sports and activities is put in one account and any of the sports/activities can use it...not just their money.

They may look like practice jerseys but teachers need raises and the kids need books and materials for school to!! I am tired of all the money going for sports and sports at Lee High it is time we put a priority on a few thing around here.

That is a lot of money i went to every game last year and really was not embarrassed at all. There were several close games did not notice the uniform at all. What was so wrong with them we are not there to look good we are there to play good.
