Reinstate Mrs. Speck as Director

Hello Wootton Theater students!

Currently, Wootton theater does not have a director for the 2017-2018 school year. Mrs. Ingram, who directed this year, has stated that she will not return as director, and applications are now out. However, we believe that the job rightfully belongs to Mrs. Speck. Mrs. Speck had been directing Wootton show for several years before being removed from her position. At the time, she and the student body were not made aware of the reasons for Ms. Boldon letting her go. The only information about her removal that students were able to find out came from teachers discussing the matter. To our understanding, the parents of two 2016 graduates and a 2014 graduate make complaints to administration after graduation. 

During her time at Wootton, Mrs. Speck created a warm and welcoming environment in the theater department. She was a professional and efficient leader who helped make Wootton theater a safe space for cast and crew members alike, as well as an invaluable theater education. Mrs. Speck is beyond qualified for the job, having been passionate about theater for years. 

We humbly ask you to sign our petition asking administration to consider our sincere request to reinstate Mrs. Jessica Speck as the director of wootton theater. 

Thank you.
