Murphy's exit from board not professional

I am a senior at Federal Way High School and I am writing in response to the coverage of Ann Murphy’s resignation from the School Board. I take exception to the manner in which she resigned.

The professional way would have been to give some kind of notice. I believe that a Christian professional would provide more advance notice and certainly a different approach to an exit from a position that was held for so long. The way in which she quickly packed up and left questions unanswered as to why she resigned seems odd to me. As representing my need as a student, I would have thought she would have provided adequate notice and assistance in securing a replacement board member.

But I believe that the district and the community of Federal Way would have liked the opportunity to formally thank her for her dedication and commitment to her position.
