Dear Editor,
I am writing in response to the Athlete of the Week section in the Aug. 24 edition of the Leader. You chose a professional MMA fighter. I feel that this section is for local school athletes and should not include anyone outside of the school age children of our town. In this busy society we live in children are overlooked on a daily basis and just one “great job” or “well done” can really lift them up. Let’s keep something that should be about our local children, for our local children and celebrate their victories. Let’s not make it about professional athletes from any sport.
