Parents of kids on Pennsylvania high school rifle team want to know why their kids’ activity was banned from appearing in the school’s yearbook.
When Parents of kids on the Emmaus High School championship rifle team got news that their kids’ activity didn’t show up in the Hornet, the school’s yearbook, not even a mention much less a photograph, there were questions galore. Like, was the team banned from the yearbook because the left-wing school district is anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment, and anti-Constitution?
Parents went to the September 9 school board meeting hoping to get answers to these important questions but the school board ignored them and offered no answers.
As it happens the Emmaus school rifle team was a big winner recently having won the 2012-13 district competitions. Still, the club was ignored by the school’s yearbook committee.
The rifle team did pose for a photo taken by the man the yearbook staff hired to take the school’s photos.
Photographer Don Herb said the picture was so good that he wanted to send one to each of the team’s members for free.
One local Republican candidate for the school board said he wasn’t going to let the slight go without being talked about.
Chris Donatelli said, “This issue, if not addressed, will only fester. I’m not going to let it lie.”
Some of the parents of the co-ed rifle team agreed. Parents Lorraine Husack and Rochelle Bachman both vowed to keep pushing the school board for answers.
