During my sophomore or junior year of high school my best friend was in a predatory relationship with a teacher, Chuck Williams. I will not speak on their story, because it is not mine, but I did tell the proper authorities at the time. I first went to Lusco, who I now know is an abuser and rapist, but at the time I thought was a trusted faculty member. I then spoke to Forston, Horn, and Noone. I gave them specifics including new screennames, emails, and when the relationship began. This story is not about Chuck, but believe me he is a terrible molester and human being. This story is about how the administration refused to believe me or even inform my friend's mother that a complaint had been made. Michelle Williams then proceeded to retaliate against me by giving me subpar grades on all of my assignments. She even verbally abused me in front of my classmates by calling me stupid and telling me my points were "underdeveloped." That's been proven incorrect by the fact I graduated college Cum Laude and have a joint JD/MPH from a top tier school. Michelle, I know you are reading this, and let me be clear...you are not free of fault. We remember you and we always will. I'm sure you remember me, and to be honest, I hope I haunt you as much as you haunt me.
