Bring Arenberg Back

This petition had 675 supporters

Michael Arenberg, a loved cross country coach at STCE high school was let go on 5/24.  After a disappointing race, an email was sent out expressing his regret.  It was an emotional night, because the results of the sectional race were unexpected and worse than what he imagined.  The email was deemed as harsh and some parents were upset.  He later apologized for the email.  After being  brought to the attention of the athletic director, he was let go.

Arenberg has spent his whole life dedicated to running and the STCE girls cross country team.  One of the girls he coaches describes him as the "greatest person in the world".  He spends countless hours preparing for races, creating split times and making sure everyone is the best they can be.  He also spends time making sure the team atmosphere is amazing, which is something that you don't get on other teams.  Other girls describe him as "passionate, a great coach, amazing, enthusiastic, and encouraging."

For the people who know Coach Arenberg, they will understand that this email was never meant to hurt anyone, and if it was, he apologized and regretted it.  

The cross country team is his life, and his family.  Many girls think of him as family, and cannot imagine a cross country season without him.
