Reassign Audrey Devine
This petition made change with 137 supporters!
We, the parents, students, and members of the Forestview community, call upon the Gaston County School Board and superintendent L. Reeves McGlohon to reassign or replace Mrs. Audrey Devine as Principal of Forestview High School. While this call for reassignment has been desired for a couple years, recent events causing Forestview to become the laughing stock of Gaston County Schools is the last straw.
In light of recent events, and sensitivity of school administration, it may not be feasible for students to sign this petition (although it can be signed privately). However, the statement made by parents and community signing this petition will be even more persuasive. Let the superintendent and school board know that you stand with Forestview students in the call for the reassignment of Audrey Devine, rather than supporting an increasingly heavy-handed administration. This leadership style would be better served in an elementary school. Do not fear retaliation for parental, family, and community signatures. You should fear the supression of free speech.
Student pride at Forestview has been steadily declining since Mrs. Devine's assignment as Principal. It is a disgrace that a high school experience, which should be fond memory and highlight of a student's life, has to be tarnished. In years past, a school's administration would strive to maintain school pride among students. Students were proud to be a Greenwave, a Huskey, or a Red Raider. Current administration at Forestview has made it hard to be a proud Jaguar. I venture to say Jaguar pride is at an all time low.
Pride in your institution leads to a willingness to support your school, to defend your school, and a desire to participate in extracurricular activities as a Jaguar. This school pride is extremely important to the overall development of a young person. Your high school should hold a special place in your heart forever, rather than a sour, dissonant feeling.
