Class of 2016

Devastated over firing

EDITOR: We are Heath and Reyna Whittemore, we have a daughter, Ashlee, who is a junior and a son, Jack, who graduated in 2016. This is a statement about how Mr. Bordelon positively affected our daughter’s and our lives. This last summer, our daughter Ashlee decided to transfer to Vintage High School, partly due to missing her brother and her childhood friends (her plan was to attend high school with her brother for at least a year). When we notified Justin-Siena of her transfer to Vintage High School, the one person who reached out immediately to us was John Bordelon. He had us in his office for several meetings, always very supportive of Ashlee and her decision to transfer. However, he always made her feel special, and that he would make it his personal responsibility to make her remaining years at Justin successful if she decided to stay. Even though she completely enrolled, transferred and committed to Vintage High School, she believed Mr. Bordelon because he had always come through for her in the past. So she re-enrolled in Justin for this year and just as Mr. Borderlon had promised her, this has been the best school year of her life…until now.

When she woke up the morning he was fired, all she could say was: “This can’t be happening.” She was, is, will always be… devastated over this.
