Dr. Laurie Kimbrel was recently chosen to be Township High School District 113's new superintendent. However, since this announcement, several allegations against her have come to light. The Chicago Tribune reported that her husband, Tom Olrick, was involved in cyberbullying community members that did not like the actions his wife was taking. How can we, as parents, students, and community members, be assured that she was not involved in this atrocious scandal, and that she will take it upon herself to promote anti-bullying programs, if she can't even control one person? Additionally, it was later revealed that she had connections to the recruiting firm that recommended her for the position. Although the president of the search firm noted that Dr. Kimbrel was brought on as an associate last spring, and confirmed that she never helped with a search and therefore never received any compensation, this is unfair to other candidates for the role as she had training as to how to assist with searches, which may have provided her with an unfair advantage in this executive search. Dr. Kimbrel is a bad choice for District 113, and the Board of Education needs to take it upon themselves to correct their mistake.
