Veteran Brunswick School Board Member Bill Thompson on Hiring An Athletic Director

About This Project

This past Wednesday, the Brunswick School Board hired Mt. Ararat Middle School Assistant Principal Kaili Phillips, a former Division 1 volleyball player at the University of Maine and veteran coach, to serve as athletic director. This move was made in front of a crowd of local residents who turned out before the board in support of longtime Brunswick High math teacher and lacrosse coach Don Glover for the job.

The school board’s handling of the process has been widely criticised but is defended here by veteran board member Bill Thompson.
