Earlier in the day on Monday, Dec. 14 Yorktown Athletic Director Ty Robinson demoted head volleyball coach Deirdra Alexander as head coach for volleyball and girls track.
Yorktown Independent School District trustees held their regular scheduled meeting last night at the YJHS Library.
At the meeting there was standing room only from young to old. A majority were there to give support and express their concern to the board as to why coach Alexander was demoted.
The board opened the meeting allowing the five people, who signed a request form, to speak publically about the issues. The board could not respond, by policy, to any of the allegations or comments from the speakers.
Amanda Thamm expressed her concern that the athletic director let another coach go after serving over a decade. She expressed how the AD is doing a disservice to the school and it’s programs.
