A thought occurred to me, I don’t know if I am right or not, but events tend to lean toward the I am right side.
Before the debacle of consolidation of Stroman and VHS was corrected, stories and tales where told about a preference shown to some students over others, be it Football, Baseball, Band or virtually any group at Memorial High.
Now that we have two brand spanking new high schools, a few other schools, a state of the art auditorium and Natatorium coming soon, it seems to me that just maybe all the talk about about a preference being shown just might have been true.
Let’s be honest, most of the preferred students would be the ones from the higher end of Victoria s population. And it seems that a majority of those students ended up at West HS.
West HS received a brand new football coach, and lots of people thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. West also had the honor of having the National Award winning Drill Team instructor as a part of the faculty.
Well, we all know, so far how those selections have turned out.
At East HS, the bad old Memorial football coach was placed and the Drill Team started with a brand new instructor.
All the drama with the West Drill Team, and the better than any one thought results of the East football team point to one conclusion, IMO.
All the Memorial students that had to take a “back seat” to the preferred students are now showing how talented they really where all the time.
Once the “privileged” students moved to a campus where they can continue to be “privileged”, the true talent of the truly talented un privileged students is now reveled.
