EVHS athletic director apologizes

I apologize for not being fully present during the singing of the national anthem at the boys varsity basketball game on Saturday versus Delta. My actions are my own and do not reflect the Eagle Valley High School administration or our EVHS community.

I grew up in a military family and was raised to stop everything when the national anthem is being played or sung. I also tell our students that people are watching even when you don’t think they are. I am guilty of not having my actions follow what I believe.

I respect the flag, the country, and am extremely thankful for our men and women who serve our country. I will be more aware of my actions and behaviors in the future.

Thank you for your understanding and forgiveness.

Tami Payne

EVHS Athletic Director
