Brown County High School Yearbook Advisor Resigns

(BROWN CO.) – The Brown County School High School Yearbook Advisor Dr. Greg Mosley has resigned after a racial incident where a basketball player was referred to in a photo caption as “Black Guy” and not by his name.

Superintendent Dr. Laura Hammack and Brown County high school Principal Matthew Stark issued a letter after learning of the complaint calling the incident “a truly reprehensible error.”

Dr. Mosley’s resignation comes just four days after the district announced that he would no longer serve as yearbook advisor and was suspended two weeks without pay.

The district confirmed his resignation in this statement:

From the superintendent:

“Dr. Greg Mosley, the former yearbook advisor for Brown County High School, has resigned from his employment with Brown County Schools.  While the incident involving our student and the ensuing process have been extraordinarily difficult, we hope it is clear that disrespectful acts and attitudes such as these are not tolerated.  I am extremely proud of both Brown County Schools and the larger Brown County community regarding how we have come together to affirm this is neither who we are nor who we want to be.  Moving forward, let’s please all work to overcome the unprecedented challenges we are facing to make this the best possible school year.”
