Letter: We need to work together to keep this program at Ada HS

To the general public,
It has come to my attention that Ada High School is terminating one of its
programs. A program that has brought home no less than 150 trophies since it
has been at Ada. A program that is home to upwards of 30 students per year. A
program that takes the backseat to all other programs at Ada High School. A
program that doesn’t get recognized enough. A program that I am an alumnus
and teacher of. This program is the Ada High School Winter Guard.

Ada Historical Society meet on Nov. 18

Letter: WG program at Ada HS is a viable, appropriate and necessary experience

To the Village of Ada Community,
I am writing this as an outcry to our community on behalf of the children in our community that are enrolled at Ada High School. I am a proud alumnus from the class of 2014, but today I am not so proud of my alma mater. I write this letter with the utmost respect for Ada High School and the institutions administrators, as I have had the wonderful opportunities to work directly with students in this district; but I can no longer sit on the sidelines and watch our children suffer with no reason or response given. As an advocate for our youth in the community and the arts, I must provide my absolute support to them.
