Reinstate Coach Michael Maccay

This petition had 265 supporters

Coach Michael MacCay was terminated from his head coaching duties at Lexington Senior High School in the wake of an alleged assault on a student athlete. The superintendent, Rick, Kriesky, rushed to judgement after a parent went to the media (Fox 8 WGHP) and proceeded with the termination of head baseball coach MacCay.

There are always 3 sides to every story...side 1 vs side 2, and then the outlier, the truth. In the interview with Fox 8, the parent was calling for transparency in the case. But does the community not deserve this same right? There were interviews conducted of eye witnesses, and it is common belief that those accounts do not confirm the accusations of assault...but this is pure speculation. The community deserves to know the facts of this case, and Michael MacCay deserves a fair shake at this. He did not receive due process in the case, and the superintendent made an irrational decision to terminate coach MacCay due to the bad PR they were receiving in light of the investigation. 

Coach MacCay has dedicated his life to the kids that he coached throughout the years and positively impacted the lives of countless student athletes. It is only fair to the children whose lives have been impacted by MacCays coaching that he be given a fair shake in this matter. 

A man's life has been turned upside down and his reputation in spoils due to heresay. The community is left divided. It is time that the official investigation report be released for public review, and if the reports prove the speculation of coach MacCays innocence then he should be reinstated to his previous positions as head wrestling coach and head baseball coach at LSHS. #CoachMike #JusticeNotJudgement #Transparency #ReinstateTheCoach
