DOTHAN: In reference to the Dothan City Schools plans of which are being discussed.
While I have never met Dr. Edwards, let me be clear about the plans being presented.
Former Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz who is now Dothan School Board Chairman Mike Schmitz is the man in charge. To make the decision to go from Dothan Mayor to School Board Chairman, your heart, intentions and efforts are in the right place.
Think about it Folks, Mike Schmitz would have beat/slaughtered ANYONE who dared to challenge him as Mayor of Dothan Alabama if he had decided to run for a third term. But because Mike Schmitz had seen the education system here and other places, saw the effect it had on industrial recruitment, and on the children of Dothan, he decided to give up Mayor and run for School Board Chairman.
Mike Schmitz has no children or grandchildren in the Dothan City School system. He has no business that makes money from the school system. He is able to go to the beach and kick his feet up and enjoy life.
But because a lady took the time and effort when Mike Schmitz was a child to teach him to read, because he has seen the need, Mike Schmitz was willing to jump into the heat of fire to make a difference in education. And take a beating from some parents who “think” they know everything but in reality “know nothing”.
So while Rickey Stokes DOES NOT KNOW the plans of the Dothan City Schools, and Rickey Stokes “does not know Dr. Edwards”, here is what I stake my life on...
Mike Schmitz will and is focusing the Dothan City Schools in the right direction to make a difference in lives. And if the nay sayers and wantabes’ will calm down and chill, listen to Mike Schmitz And follow his guidance, the City of Dothan will have an effective school system.
IF YOU WERE MIKE SCHMITZ, other than making a positive difference, why in the world would you go from Mayor to School Board Chairman? I would go to the beach!
