WASD fails to acknowledge “victims” in Myrtle Beach incident; uses death of George Floyd as distraction

Talkwilliamsport.com has placed a “frozen in time” clock near the top of the website.


The “frozen in time” clock serves as a constant reminder of the ineptitude of the Williamsport Area School District and their refusal to acknowledge the victims of “criminal sexual misconduct” which occurred during the 2018 WAHS baseball team trip in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

That behavior has now drawn criminal charges from authorities in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The ineptitude was outlined in a pair of 5-part series “OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone” and “The anatomy of the WASD Anti-Racism Board Resolution”.

The entire chronology has also been outlined in “A Baseball Story in the Birthplace of Little League Baseball”.

From “OP-ED: Jennifer Lake Wokebegone”:

The indisputable timeline of insanity regarding the Myrtle Beach incident compared to the anti-racism Resolution unanimously approved last night defies logic.

  • WASD concludes investigation of Myrtle Beach incident June 5, 2018.
  • 19 months later – WASD issues Statement on handling of Myrtle Beach incident January 9, 2020.
  • George Floyd who has never been a student in the WASD is killed in Minnesota on May 25, 2020.
  • Less than 30 days later – WASD school board approves Anti-racism Resolution June 23, 2020
  • The anti-racism Resolution is based on national events including the death of George Floyd.

So Jennifer Lake and her fellow WASD board members had a faster public response to the death of George Floyd than a “criminal sexual misconduct” incident involving students in the district.

How could I forget, child privacy laws prevented the WASD from making a statement – for 19 months!
