Letter: Firing of coach a community loss

As a longtime supporter and fan of women's basketball, I am appalled at the manner in which Pam Wimberley was dismissed from her coaching job at Menlo-Atherton High School.

Hundreds of young girls were coached and mentored by Coach Wimberley. Their lives are better for having known her. As to the few who failed to see her qualities, it is their loss.  But it also our community's loss.

Age/race is part of this dismissal. How proud that principal must feel.
