Mr. Roland Bott, Principal 

I would like to congratulate you, Declo High School, Coach’s Jacoby Fox, Povlsen, Armstrong, Olsen and the Declo High School Boys Basketball team.  Your teams displayed sportsmanship better than anything I have ever seen in high school sports.  Your C team allowed a young man with Downs Syndrome the chance to make his first and maybe his only basket he will ever score in a basketball game.  Your varsity team showed compassion and support for the Filer team, coaches, school and community who lost a young man through a horrible traffic accident.  There were quite a few tears shed during your teams display of support. I want to express my appreciation for Declo High School administration, staff and students.  The acts of kindness were immeasurable.

Again Thank You, Fred W. Jaynes, Filer School District, Board of Trustee Chairman
