Support Chief Frost
New Hanover County Schools Human Resource Division
CC: Dr. Tim Markley
To whom it may concern,
We, former and current cadets/parents along with friends involved in Eugene Ashley Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC), wished to state our support for Chief Thomas Frost. Many of us have known him for years. He has been a role model for students, whether they were involved in the program or not.
He has such a kind heart. He is always there for his students, past and present. Just this year, one of his cadet’s parent was arrested. This cadet and their brother asked for Chief because they knew he would help them navigate through this crisis. Another cadet might have gone into the foster system without Chief making some inquiries. Chief always goes beyond the call of duty because he cares. In this day and age, that is a rare thing. Most people only care about themselves, but not Chief.
Those of us who know Chief, know he did not mean his comment in the way that some people took it. Chief sees past race, gender and religion to help and encourage the youth in Wilmington.
We understand that you must investigate this matter. Everyone who has signed this is doing so to show support for a wonderful teacher. Please take our voices to heart when making decisions.
Signed by many concerned citizens
