Bangor High Principal Butler Deserves a Medal

Now that Bangor High School Principal Paul Butler has reversed his decision and allowed the veteran math teacher to display her non-religious tree in her classroom, it is time to nominate Mr. Butler for a Profiles in Courage Award. He had the fortitude to take a strong stand initially and then showed the highest level of integrity in changing his position when opposition arose from many quarters. He is role model for educators in Maine and elsewhere.

Surely he is entitled to a bonus for his performance in recent days.

He makes me proud to be a resident of Bangor.
