She and other outraged parents immediately called administrators, created a petition for disciplinary action and made several attempts to publicize the incident on local news outlets.

“The principal just stated that he would speak to her. But that’s not good enough,” Howard expressed. “And I know some people called the local news and they’re kind of brushing it under the rug.”

Howard believes that Smithersman’s behavior disrespects the close-knit military city especially when some of the students’ have lost a parent in the war.

“If you’ve ever been to Fort Hood, people are very serious about the military. That’s what we are, a military community,” Howard said.

Calls to Harker Heights High School Principal David Manly were not returned. However, Killeen School District did address the issue.

“The incident was investigated and handled appropriately on the campus and we cannot discuss personnel matters,” said district spokesperson Leslie Gilmore.

  1. When Ronald Regan, George Sr and Jr were elected, did poor/minority people react the way some of these nut-bags have reacted to President Obama? NOPE!! We had no choice but to accept it, we made the best of it and toughed it out. These sorry sore losers will have to do the same and stop all these foolishness AND get over it!!!

  2. Who cares? Why do we always react to these trivial issues?
    One Teacher in a nation of over 300 million . Spend more time on relevant issues affecting our community.
    This story is equivalent to a Person who trips over a $5 Bill in order to pick up a penny. Only small minded people waste time on stupid stuff like this.
