DOTHAN: Congratulations to Honeysuckle Middle School for “making the list”. But, it was the wrong list.
Honeysuckle Middle School in Dothan Alabama made the list of the 30 failing schools in the State of Alabama.
Here is the saving part for the Dothan City Schools. A man made a decision in 2017 of which a lot of people scratched their heads over. And truth be known today he is probably scratching his head asking why.
That man was then Dothan Mayor Mike Schmitz. Why in the world would you go from Mayor of the City of Dothan to Chairman of the Dothan City School Board.
Ladies and Gentleman, this is our answer.
Schmitz did not take over the reigns of the Dothan City School Board Chairman until October. The Honeysuckle grades were already into the bureaucratic Alabama School Board.
But here is what I can promise the parents and citizens of Dothan Alabama. Mike Schmitz is the man of the hour. His sleeves are already rolled up and I can guarantee he is working to save the Dothan City Schools.
You might hear some complaints from the bureaucrats in the school system. IGNORE THEM if you do. Because it is those who have been in control that have let Honeysuckle Middle School fail and be on a failing list in this state.
But if the citizens of Dothan will place their confidence in Mike Schmitz, I promise you if anyone can fix it he can.
And to step “down” as Mayor to School Board Chairman, your heart for making something better is in it.
