Kudos for standing up to Riverbank school board

June 24, 2013 

I would like to thank Steve Walker and John Mitchell for standing up to the other three school board members of Riverbank School District. As sports are important to some, they are not important to all.

My thoughts are that an education is what's important to students, not throwing a football or running around a track.

My understanding is that Kirk Peterson is still coaching; he is just not receiving a stipend for his time. And he can thank his dad, Ron Peterson, for that, as Ron worked for Turlock School District for free.

I applaud Steve and John for standing up for what's right!
