I have an idea. Lets have Mike Rattray go out to the community, interact with the children at the west side boys and girls club and see how much success he has at even maintaining a conversation, let alone have the ability and skills to influence, motivate and empower one single child.

POOR DECISION, AFTER POOR DECISION.....these decisions that Mike Rattray keeps making really has me questioning his true motives, and goals for the boys club. You let go of the person who has been there the longest, who should be looked upon as an assett, as a source of direction and input. Not someone you just dispose of without even a weeks notice. Is that even legal? Is that how you repay loyal employees that do all the work while you set at your desk and focus on "Job Descriptions"??? Hmmm.....

It is rather ironic how Mike Rattray claims that the goal of the Boys Club is to 'reduce the academic achievement gap that perpetuates the cycle of poverty' when the Westside club has the most children enrolled, yet the least amount of staff. How does Mike Rattray realistically believe that goal will be achieved by laying off the ONE staff member that had the relationships built, time dedicated, and pure genuineness that could acheive that goal? How can Mike Rattray justify making that decision when he himself has had absolutely no positive impact with the ridiculous decisions he has made. Its a disgrace what he has done, and will residually continue to do which is diminish any opportunity these children had while Bernard Hicks was working there.
