Mount de Sales board chair confirms three members of board of trustees have resigned

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -Three members of the Mount de Sales board of trustees say they’re stepping down after recent controversy. 

Board chair Charles Jones tells 41NBC Joe Claxton, Kay Gerhardt, and Vickie Hertwig have all resigned after the catholic school fired a gay band teacher, Flint Dollar, who plans on marrying his partner later this year. 

Students and parents protested the board’s decision last Friday. 

Jones says the board’s mission is to continue to seek the best interest of Mount de Sales Academy, adding the best interest goes hand in hand with the teachings of the catholic church.
