The people who sent out offers of support for Mark Reil are the ones who experienced the positive role that he had in the lives of them and/or their students. While offering this support publicly...they were doing as much so in support of the students who were and are a part of the NBHS Band. Whether guilty or not...his career ended the minute he was accused. His students have experienced a devastating loss that is made even worse by the negativity that people are keeping so fresh because they have nothing better to do than to pass judgement on what they think may be true. If he did indeed make a choice that compromised his position then yes, absolutely he should answer for those actions....but not because YOU say he is guilty. Losing their band director to these circumstances is a tragic blow for the amazing students in this band family... and if you have ever been around these kids that is exactly what they consider themselves to be...a family. THEY deserve our support and prayers. Oh..and as a parent who actively supports this BAND, I thank God your child was not in his class too.
