Please help us exonerate Coach Baldwins name and reinstate him as Head Coach
Let your voices be heard...
"Time will come when you feel you are being pushed into the background. Never allow this to happen-stand always on your own foundation. But you will have to make that foundation. There will come when to make this stand will be difficult, especially to you of Hawaiian birth: but conquer you can if you will" Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop.
Aloha Friends and Family,
We are all saddened by Coach David Baldwin’s recent release as head football coach of Kamehameha Schools Hawaii. Many parents, players, alumni and friends are trying to understand what happened. Apparently there was verbal exchange of words between Coach Baldwin and a Warriors girls basketball club coach on the school track during the last week of June 2011. Coach Baldwin filed a complaint against the club coach advising the School that he and players were verbally threatened by this other coach. After a months investigation by the Human Resources department, school officials announced that Coach Baldwin will not be back to coach and that he is not allowed on campus nor is he to have any contact with any of the players.
End of story. We have been hearing conflicting stories since then that Coach Baldwin can attend future football games but unclear if he can have any contact with them while on campus.
What we do know for now is that based on the facts provided to us by Kamehameha Schools, the punishment handed down to Coach Baldwin, in our minds, was severe and overly excessive, especially in light of an eye witness account that was inadvertently missed during the initial investigation. We have since forwarded the name of that witness to Principal Aganus who has forwarded that information onto the HR department. We parents, players, alumni and friends humbly ask you to stand with us in support of Coach Baldwin. We would like to petition Kamehameha Schools to reopen their files such that a re-investigation will exonerate Coach Baldwin of any wrong doing. We would also like the school to reinstate Coach Baldwin as the Boys Varsity Football Head Coach.
If you beleive in our cause, please sign your name and pass on to other supporters. The more signatures the better. If you would like to write a testimonial about your dealings with Coach, please feel free to write something to show his positive management skills and his compassion for our players.
Thank you for your support!
