You read that right. The Union County High School Gay Straight Alliance is without a sponsor, according to club president Brady Blanton.
I reached out to Brady via text message to ask how things are going. He said the group has no sponsor yet because, “no one has responded.”
The club cannot meet without a teacher sponsor. Brady said he’s asked to speak with new principal Carmen Murphy about the sponsor issue, but has not gotten a time slot with her yet.
School started in Union County Aug. 3.
I reached out to Murphy via email and will add her comments when she responds.
The club’s former sponsor, Chris Richeson, was non-renewed for the 2016-2017 school year. If you are concerned about the lack of a teacher sponsor for the UCHS GSA, here is a list of suggestions for things you can do.
