Have you ever made a decision that you were certain would anger students and parents--and not too long after the phone calls start? I had the bittersweet privilege of taking over one of the largest, and most active student organizations in the school at the beginning of the semester. Unfortunately, one of the tasks I was to oversee prior to year's end was the election of new officers for next year. High school being what it is, the students created more drama than should be possible splitting up into some bitter factions. Due to the fact that the faction with the largest following was trying to nominate students with bad attitudes and lacked taking the program seriously ... and do to a previous bout with poor voting during an extremely serious matter, I opted to appoint the officers myself in the name of doing what is right/best for the chapter. Needless to say that I appointed students did not go over so well, without regard to selecting some that leadership wise are perfect for the job, but other students can't stand. Well, that's where I am at. I already received a phone call from an irate parent on my cell phone (forgot I gave two students the number on an overnight field trip where I wanted to make sure the students could get a hold of me in case something serious happened). She expects a return, and I will, from school likely with an administrator via speakerphone. It's my own doing I suppose. I could have let the elections take place for better or worse and enjoy a less-dramatic ending to the school year.
