Reinstate Coach Hill

The purpose of this petition is to demonstrate our support for Coach Hill and our appreciation for all the contributions he has made to students, their families and Lakeside. He is the epitome of a role model; strong in character and steadfast in his values. He is the epitome of a teacher; leading by example, always first to congratulate any success and never missing an opportunity to impart knowledge. He is the epitome of a coach; hardworking, passionate and competitive. He is the epitome of Lakeside; holding well-roundedness above all else. Coach Hill has been an invaluable asset to the students past and present at LHS. Future students should not be deprived of the presence he brings to those halls and those athletic fields he helped build. For these reasons and more we request that the Columbia County Board of Education and Principal Jeff Carney reinstate Coach Hill as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. They are positions he has more than earned with his twenty years of unwavering and sacrificing service. This petition will be mailed and e-mailed to Principal Carney and the Superintendent within the next couple of weeks. If you believe that Coach Hill has been mistreated and should be re-hired please sign below and add any additional sentiments. Also, spread the word to any other friends who would like to sign. Thank you for your support.


This petition is sponsored by \"Support Coach Hill\" the group of students, almuni, parents and other members of the community that wish to see Coach Hill reinstated as Head Football Coach and Athletic Director at Lakeside High School. This petition was started myself, Sam Jasinski, to organize those that would like to express their support for Coach Hill. I graduated from Lakeside in 2004. While there, I played football and wrestled for four years. Now I am at MIT studying to receive my BS in Mechanical Engineering and still playing football. I owe a lot to Coach, I would not be where I am today without him. If anyone else has any suggestions on how we can make our voices heard or would like to contact me I can be reached at or 706-564-0313.

I had a lot of friends whose lives have been greatly impacted by Coach Hill, and I think this situation is disgusting.

Coach Hill is one of the few teachers that I will always remember from Lakeside. He and his family positively impacted my life in many ways. I still remember when Randy took over the girls varsity basketball team while Martha was on maternity leave. He was a great coach and mentor and always treated me with respect. I recently moved back to Columbia County and looked forward to bringing my three boys to Lakeside football games and seeing familiar faces. Lakeside will never be the same without a Coach Hill!!!
