SHOULD RUSSELL HEASTON REMAIN AS PRINCIPAL OF SHEFFIELD HIGH SCHOOL?
In Feb. of this year FOX13 reported that Russell Heston principal of Sheffield High School was under investigation for a sexual relationship with a former student. MCS stated that the Memphis Police department found no cause to press charges and that they were conducting their own investigation.
Apparently MCS found no cause to remove Heaston from Shefffield seeing that he is still employed by the system. But if MCS has seen the the evidence that i have seen then the school system for some reason is protecting an educator who is preying on young men who have been his students.
Within moments of posting the previous post with pics from the video that I received this past weekend, the older man in the video was unidentified as Russell Heaston who not only is a principal of a high school but a deacon at the Oak Grove Baptist Church on Highway 64.
The problem here is not the fact that Heaston is homosexual or a "Down low Brother" but a person who should be an example for young men. Heaston should be trying to lead young men down a path of success and proper conduct. Heaston has no business having a sexual relationship with a student or a former student because of his position.
There is no doubt that the young man in the video set Heaston up but the question is why. Why did this young man feel the need to place a camera in place to record his actions with Heaston ? Was blackmail a factor? Is the reason that Heaston was reported earlier this year or the reason that i received the tape because Heaston did not pay the bribe cost?
Russell Heaston has no business as a principal of a high school. How can he now be respected by the young men of Sheffield when they know he is not the man he has portrayed himself to be? Will parents be comfortable with him with their sons? Has his actions caused embarrassment to his wife who i understand is a teacher in the system and should she have herself checked?
Now that MCS will be able to see what happened between Heaston and the former student what should their response be?
