Perseverance pays off!
As some of you may recall, I've been having a bit of a problem with my son's high school soccer coach telling him he had to cut his hair short to be able to play on the team. My son has been growing his hair out for Locks of Love for a year now (he's donated before), and it will be another two years before his hair will be long enough to donate again. After attempting to address this with the coach over and over again, the coach wasn't interested in his reasons, and told him he still had to cut it if he wanted to play.
I sent a very long letter to the coach and other school officials detailing the situation, and told them of my intent to go the the school board and the media with the issue. Finally, they figured out I was serious.
Today I met with the athletic director, principal and superintendent. I'm glad to say that they have apologized for the way they handled this situation and have asked my son to come play for his school again. The whole issue has really upset him, and he may still decide not to play because of the stress this has caused in his life, but this arbitrary rule will be addressed so this can't happen to another child.
It was a good day in Savageworld. :)
