I recently heard the current principal at El Dorado High School removed the 30-year-old “Wall of Fame” from the campus weight room. This wall was originally started in 1983 to honor El Dorado football players for earning “All League” recognition. This wall stood for hard work, dedication and athletic excellence and inspired many in their effort to be the best they can be.
It’s difficult for me to comprehend the wall is gone. I cannot think of a legitimate reason for its removal.
This letter was written to inform the community of what has happened and let them take whatever action they choose. This letter as well as a phone call to Principal Barnes stating my disgust with his decision, is where I started. This decision must not stand. The “Wall” stands for what this country was founded on and should be looked upon with pride. If more of you feel as I do, take the time to do your part.
I’m the proud parent of three El Dorado High School graduates.
