Amy Daugherty started this petition to Festus School Board of Education

Coach Russ Schmidt has given 13 years of his heart and dedication as head coach of the Festus Football Progam.  At the end of this season and before receiving his coach evaluation, the AD came to him to let him know the program needs to move in a new direction and he had two choices - resign or be fired.

Russ Schmidt is not just a coach for these boys ... he is their mentor. He teaches them to serve their community, to be scholar athletes, to be leaders.  This man follows the boys from their entrance into Festus Football and throughout their lives ... it doesn’t end with graduation.   Coach has spent so much of his personal time to make sure this program succeeds on and off the field.  He has spent countless hours in hospital waiting rooms with families he barely knows but he looks at the patient as his own.  He puts his entire heart into this program.  

As parents we don’t want to see this man lose his job just because the AD has made a decision for a change.  Coach Schmidt has done nothing wrong.  

 If you believe that Coach Schmidt deserves to continue his time as Head Coach please help us fight for his job.
