It is time that Montgomery County Ice Hockey Players receive the support and recognition they deserve from their county and schools.
Please use the link below and sign my petition asking MCPS to: Make Ice Hockey An Official Varsity Sport. Thank you for your help.
Following Jeremy’s presentation to the Board of Education on 2/11/14, Jeremy received direct contact and had a meeting with board member Michael Durso. Mr. Durso was very encouraging that Jeremy not give up, and was supportive of the effort.He provided the official document generated from the Board. We then sent that document out to the several parents who attended the meeting with Jeremy, as well as the president of the MHC (and MSHL exec) John Drzewicki. We received a great document from parent Don Harnois with feedback on the main issues. We feel like the next step would be to formally resubmit the proposal addressing and countering the many inaccurate statements. Mr. Durso did feel that having a student face on this was more effective and Jeremy is happy to continue to serve in that role. We do, however, think that he does need a great deal more adult help, as he spent a full year and a half on this as the primary force. We thought we would reconnect with Mr. Harnois and Mr. Drzewicki on the issue, and would love any additional help from anyone on our team or anyone else you think might like to be involved.
