Eliminating Coach Kozens' job will hurt a lot more than it'll help

To The Daily Sun,

I am writing about the article about dissolving the dean of students' position at Laconia High School. I think dissolving Coach Kozens' job is wrong in many ways.

I have seen firsthand the interaction he has with students and believe due to him many of our young people are where they are now because of him. If he had not mentored them through their years in LHS many of them would not be in jobs or colleges now.

I wish I had had a person like him when I was at LHS in 1974. I know many people will say we have guidance counselors for this reason, but this job is completely different. I would like to thank Coach Kozens for the great work he has done for the students of LHS and I hope that the School Board reconsiders what they have proposed. This will hurt more than help, and in this day we need more people like him in our schools
