To the Perry Community,
As anticipated, Coach Wakefield formally submitted his resignation this morning. Words cannot express the District's gratitude to the many years of successful dedication to the young men of Perry and the proud tradition he has built. The Board will post the position internally for 5 days as required by the contract. The Board of Education believes that because such a positive culture has been built that the best decision moving forward is to look at an individual who has been a part of the success and understands what it takes to Get It Done.
In regards to the desire by many to honor Coach Wakefield, please be patient as we navigate through this transition. There will be an appropriate time and way to recognize Coach Wake for the many years of service and to express our gratitude. May we never take for granted the unparalleled success that Perry Football has experienced and the attributes needed to achieve that success.
