In recent days, Everett High School principal Eric Naumann, a longtime teacher, educator, coach, and friend to thousands of Everett students, has come under attack for appearing in a spoof video which references a popular movie. The video idea was originally drawn up by a few Audio/Video students as an outside-the-box, fun way to announce Mr. Naumann's introduction as the new principal. Always the first to be responsive and involved with his students happenings, Mr. Naumann participated, and the end result has been one that nobody envisioned. There has been public outcry from parents and media alike that the video, in light of the recent tragic school shootings, is inappropriate. Furthermore, there is growing sentiment that Mr. Naumann should be asked to resign or be terminated. This 'petition' is not directed at any organization, media channel, or entity. This petition is designed only to be our platform to support Mr. Naumann during this tumultuous time, and more than anything, deliver the message loud and clearly (and in large numbers), that there couldn't possibly be a better person to lead Everett High School. This man is a difference-maker, a life-changer, and he needs us right now. Any former students, colleagues, or friends who know the caliber of person we are talking about here, please stand up, support Erick, and let the world know what kind of person he really is. People like Erick don't come along often, and the community of Everett and it's families have been fortunate enough that he chose to serve in our schools. Let's keep him where he belongs and ensure that we have the best of the best leading our children.
