My name is Claire Hoffer and I am a senior at David W, Butler High School, I believe you have heard of it since you have been at a couple of the football games within the years. This email may be a little far-fetched but it doesn't hurt to try. So as people know CMS schools require seniors to write a graduation paper and make a product and present them to a board of people. My paper was on bullying... That is a pretty big topic so I narrowed it down to the way materialist things define a child's status in high school when it shouldn't. I believe personality, interest, even values should be more important than the clothes we wear and the cars we drive. Sadly high school kids don't all think that. I would kill for an interview with Cam Newton to talk about his schooling experience. Have him talk about if he was bullies or if he bullied or just bullying in general when he wad in school. I know you probably think I am out of my mind thinking I can interview him for my product. I just want to make a huge impact on the next generation of kids coming into high school and even kids in high school now. I have been bullied before for the materialist and so has my younger brother who will be a freshman in high school next year. I want to make an impact on the school and future kids entering the school before I leave here. Below is my graduation paper and I am begging you to not just shoot this down it would be so important to me and the school and I am also trying to go to middle schools and talk to kids who will be in high school next year and inform them on this subject that can easily go extinct.
Thank you and have a blessed day!

Dear Coach Rivera

I listened to your comments that you made in Boca regarding Cam Newton. Sorry to say Mr Newton Handled himself poorly in the post game Super Bowl interview. He needs to act like a professional not a 10 year old spoiled brat.I can appreciate your trying to defend his actions however is he not cashing a BIGBOY paycheck every week? Sorry but he needs to grow up and when you defend his actions he will continue to act like a spoiled brat
