Petition in Support of Tom McKimmey
It has come to our attention that the NCHSAA has decided not to renew Mr. Tom McKimmey as a Booking Agent for the 2013-2014 school year. The reasons behind this action, from what we have learned, is not "coming up to speed" with technology and too many instances of games/matches not being covered. We dispute each of these allegations. We are completely and fully integrated into the Arbiter system. All our assignments arrive via email. Other information is supplied by cell phone or text messages. Emails are quickly answered. As to the allegation of games not being assigned or covered, unless the assigned official experienced some trouble or personal issue (which Mr. McKimmey has no control over) there is no documented instance of a game or match not having officials assigned.
Mr. McKimmey wants to work one more year after this current school year in order to have 35 years of service to the NCHSAA and high school sports in North Carolina. He fully intends to retire after the 2013-2014 season.
We, the undersigned, are requesting that the NCHSAA approve this request and renew Mr. McKimmey as a Booking Agent for softball, baseball, volleyball and soccer for the 2013-2014 school year.
