Edgefield County School Board Could Blow Expansion and Successful Head
Coach in 1-2 Punch
A Column by the Editor
web posted February 18, 2012
COLUMN – As the final decision of
upgrading the football stadium continues, rumors have now begun to grow
that due to a less than friendly school board meeting on February 14 to
the idea, and the negative comments towards the sports program by
certain school board members, Coach Sawyer has been said to have
inserted his name among the list of Athletic Director hopefuls at
Batesburg Leesville High School allegedly halting their search and them
making an offer to Sawyer on Friday for the job.
Edgefield Daily is not able to confirm any of these rumors, but an
impromptu "pep rally" was staged on Friday at Strom Thurmond with
students, players, teachers, administrators, and even School Board
Member Chris Hoffmann and Interim Superintendent singing Sawyers
praises and the contribution he has made to the sports programs at the
school in an effort to convince Sawyer to stay.
Edgefield Daily's Sports Editor Tim Crane is having similar difficulty
in confirming information on the record. The Citizens News Publisher
Mike Rosier also expressed a similar frustration on the growing
situation saying no one is talking on the record.
While Tim Crane will continue his contacts on the sports side, as
Editor I will continue to seek comments from School Board members, who
are scheduled for an executive session meeting on February 17, in
regards to the choice of a new Superintendent. A call for comment to
BOE member Chris Hoffmann was not returned by press time.
According to late breaking information, Batesburg Leesville has placed
an offer on the table for Sawyer. Meanwhile a divided majority of the
school board seems to be languishing in indecision.
With the roller coaster of events that have taken place in the last
18-months of the school district, what is really going on may take
months to sort out. Sawyer may not have that kind of time to wait to
make his decision.
