Calloway is a good school. Teachers do care about the students, and most students are kind. People love to complain, but at the end of the day Calloway is a good school.

It is very sad that Coach McKeel would say in the Murray paper that Moral victories are for Losers. He evidently doesn't know what a Moral Victory is and obviosly doesn't care. He is the only Loser.
