My family moved to Hampstead because of Topsail High School. We wanted the best education for our children. The Pender County BOE and Rachel Manning have failed us. Our children are the ones suffering because of Principal Skipper's suspension. He is a leader and mentor for our children, he has not done anything wrong. It's very sad that others cannot look at Topsail High School and learn from how well the school is run. You have a hard working and dedicated group of staff, students and parents creating a wonderful learning environment for children. Mr. Skipper belongs at Topsail High School. As a Pender County BOE member said in June, reinstating Principal Skipper "is the right thing to do". It broke my heart when my daughter said yesterday, "Mom, I thought I saw Mr. Skipper coming around the corner at school today. Then I remembered that he is gone, it made me so sad."
