Parents, students, teachers voice their support for former assistant principal

New Mexico

A month after a popular Roswell High School assistant principal was mysteriously suspended, people are still pushing for him to get his job back. 

“I understand mistakes were made and I don’t want to claim to know the whole story and the facts of everything in this matter, but I really want you all to consider what this has down to the special education piece of Roswell High School,” parent Renee Fitts said at Tuesday night’s school board meeting. 

It brought tears to some eyes Tuesday night as several people stood up to speak during public comment about former Assistant Principal Pilar Carrasco

The spirit squad was also there in support. They asked the board members to reconsider his suspension, saying his loss is felt across campus. 

“He really loved us and we truly miss him,” student Amelia Romero said. 

“I just want him to kow that we’re supporting him. We haven’t forgotten him even though a few weeks have gone by,” Head Dance Coach Kim Castro said. 

It’s still unclear why he was suspended or when a decision will be made. 

KRQE News 13’s requests for answers have been denied, the superintendent saying they cannot comment on personnel matters.
