Save Eisenhower Wrestling

Dear students, families, alumnus, teachers, and those who simply are reading: it is to my disdain to announce that Eisenhower Junior High's traditioned wrestling program might soon no longer exist. Due to the lack of coaching, the pride and joy of all EJH programs might soon go to waste. This program is very decorated, going back as far as the 70s, and is the only middle school in history of the state to place top 4 four years in a row. Each year the team produces multiple state qualifiers that end up leaving their legacies through junior high and high school. It is the number one feeder program for both Hinsdale South and Downers South High Schools, and the fall of the this program would soon ensure the fall of those programs. Not only the decorated tradition, but the sense of community/family that was brought around was unlike anything anyone has ever seen. To some, it was better than their own families at home. It helped many young boys grow into mature young men and helped shape who they are today. I for one, a former wrestler, attribute most of my development as a mature young adult to the lessons learned from this prestigious program. Many of my peers can say the same, whether they witnessed it themselves or were bystanders of he process. Many parents can observe these changes in their kids as well. The goal we are trying to get at is to ensure that the future of Eisenhower, many being our siblings or friends, can experience the best tradition Eisenhower has to offer. It is in our best interest that the principal Mr. Buck and the superintendent Dr. Carlo work hard to find a new coach as soon as possible, as that is the job assigned to them in the first place. Their goal should be to make sure everything runs smoothly to ensure the success of district 61 as a whole. Please help us bring this very crucial matter to their attention so we can keep this amazing program alive. 1...2...3...EISENHOWER PRIDE !
