The MHSAA oversees just about every high school sporting event played in the state of Michigan—from bowling to skiing, it all falls under the jurisdiction of the MHSAA and its rules.
One MHSAA's rule bars males from participating on teams which generally include only females.
A high school cheerleading squad with hopes of placing in a recent statewide competition was disqualified when the contest ended in the lakeside city of Port Huron, Michigan. Long before the recent Port Huron competition, Lakeview High welcomed 14-year-old Brandon Urbas to its cheerleading team.
The City of Vermilion i Our Harbour Town Historic District also features housing styles from the Victorian, Italianate, Arts and Crafts, and Queen Anne eras.In regards to his association with the Lakeview High football team, Urbas summed it up as a very reassuring alliance: "They just tell me that if I have any problems to let them know and they always have my back."However, neither the school nor its football players could prevent the disqualification issued last week based solely on gender.Despite Lakeview High's widespread support for Urbas' endeavor, the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) disqualified Lakeview High's cheerleaders for violating an association rule—a rule the MHSAA indicated they were not willing to change.It would be shocking to propose removing a significant percentage of the expected entries from the library newsletter and decisively replacing that content with news and resources targeted at single adults.When is the last time you visited a public library’s website or social media page where most of the photo stream simply featured thirty-somethings? The public library should be a place of learning, exploration, and enjoyment for children.
