WILLCOX — The consequence of Alonzo Highsmith Jr.’s resignation was discussed last Tuesday night.

The Willcox School Governing Board went into a brief executive session on Tuesday night regarding the resignation and contract terms of Highsmith. He was hired to be the high school physical education and weights instructor in 2017, as well as coach the varsity Cowboys football team.

“I make a motion that we accept the recommendation of the superintendent to assess the liquidated damages, of $1,000 to Alanzo Highsmith for contract termination,” said board member Gary Clement.

The board unanimously agreed on the motion. When asked who would fill the empty position left by Highsmith, Superintendent Kevin Davis told the Range News that the school currently has a substitute filling the position.
