On Aug. 30th cheers could be heard coming from Westerville Central's football stadium, and not just because Central was beating DeSales but because they had just announced over their PA that Westerville North had snapped its 45-game losing streak.

It is a testament of not only school, but community pride. I have been a Westerville resident since 1969 and I have supported every levy, many fundraisers, and volunteered for all three high schools at some point and time, as many residents do.

With all of the job creation in and around Westerville and the many new residents, it is understandable that some do not know much about the tremendous history and accomplishments of our fine city and the unforgettable names of those that gave so much like Coach Sadler and Grandpa Bernowski.

My request from the school district is that you get on board to help all of the district's programs. Some of the ridiculously obvious items are 1. Not allowing the schools to place a logo or mascot in the middle of their athletic fields. 2. Leaving a "RED" Press Box at the top of North's Bleachers knowing what the program has been through. If you are in the administration or school board then you took at least one sports or related psychology class, or just common sense might work.

In closing, everyone knows that an entity is only as strong as its leadership most of the time. I am merely asking our district to do that "little extra" that can make a big difference. If small, economically suffering boarded up communities can build new stadiums and field houses, there should be no limitations on a district like ours.

Go 'Ville.
