Recently at the Westmoreland County Public Schools’ convocation, Dr. Michael D. Perry, superintendent, was seen wandering morosely all day with the burgundy and gold colors of the Washington Redskins. As part of a motivational bet to symbolize the academic achievement of the Westmoreland County students, he had agreed to be a “poster child” for the Washington Redskins for the day and he kept his promise.
The Washington Redskins Organization had sent a hat, letter, and shirt to commemorate the occasion as Dr. Perry served as a gracious host. However, not to be outdone, the Dallas Cowboys organization also made a statement. Waiting for the hoopla to settle down, the Dallas Cowboys outdid themselves by sending a wonderful care package to their wounded fan. Dr. Perry received a signed picture and letter from the Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, a program from their first game of the season, a schedule, a new hat, banner, and lots of Dallas Cowboys stickers.
Dr. Perry was overwhelmed with Mr. Jones’ generosity and gratitude to the Dallas Cowboys organization. Westmoreland County Public Schools would like to thank both the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskin organizations for taking the time to make a day very special for a small, but mighty, and fully accredited rural school system in Virginia.
