Driving into school the morning of Friday, October 22, most students were shocked to find the letters “MHS” vanadalized on windows, school walls, the senior wall, speed bumps, stairs, the parking lot, and over the Marshall Hamilton Stadium sign.
“It brings tears to my eyes; it really does. They desecrated a memorial,” said Amy Wedge, English teacher, about the destruction to Leesville’s stadium, specifically the Marshall Hamilton sign dedicated in honor of the school’s first athletic director who died of cancer in 2008.
The night of Thursday, October 21, an undetermined number of people trespassed onto the Leesville campus, sometime between 12 and 4 o’clock in the morning.
