Dear Buncombe County School Board Members and Faculty:

We as parents were as saddened and surprised as you to learn of the events that took place at wrestling practice at Owen High WED 1-10-2018.  We are of the understanding that you are aware of all circumstances surrounding the altercation.  We also acknowledge you must hold employees to a higher standard than parents.  Likewise, we as parents hold you to a high standard; employing the most capable adults to teach and instruct our children.  We feel Lucas Pokorny is best suited to instruct and teach our children and request he be immediately reinstated as the High School Wrestling Coach and Special Education instructor at the middle school. The time he has invested in our children, the dedication he has displayed to their success and growth in not only a sport, but principles of life trumps any transgressions brought on by a misguided and disorderly parent. This parent can only dictate the future of our wrestling program if you allow him to.  We want to pose a question.  Had Coach Pokorny not diffused the situation physically, what else could have happened?  One can easily interpret his actions as protecting our children. There is a track record with this parent that may finally have been addressed. Our boys are getting better with every match, and we request that continue under the guidance of Lucas Pokorny.
