Keeping tuition low puts families over sports

To the editor:

I think we need to applaud New Salem Baptist Academy's wishes to put the family over sports. In the article where the athletic director and my former coach, Ken Jones, said that the school would have to raise tuition to join Missouri State High School Activities Association shows the school cares for the families in the school. I come from a family where at one point we had four students attending New Salem. The low tuition allowed us not only to attend school there, but also to learn the word of God while in the classroom. We could have afforded to go to school at Eagle Ridge, but there are many families in New Salem that would not be able to. We need to all applaud New Salem.
