Administrators at Crosby Middle School in Hitchcock brought in school board trustee Shirley Price to give a motivational speech to students.
Probably a good idea -- Price has overcome physical handicaps to get where she is today.
Where she is today, though, apparently includes being a motivational speaker who thinks out of the box. And by "out of the box," we're making a lame pun on an old euphemism for female genitalia.
Because Price apparently went on to give a graphic description of oral and anal sex for the kids.
Hitchcock superintendent Mike Bergman later sent a letter home to Crosby parents saying the talk had been "off-target and objectionable." (We don't know if the "off-target" part refers to his preference for vaginal intercourse.)
Here;s what he told the Galveston Daily News:
Bergman said when Price was introduced, she asked that the school's principal leave the room. Most of the teachers remained, but they did not step in when Price's speech turned inappropriate, Bergman said.
"Somehow she got some story that she heard that students were having sex on campus and went into a speech about sexual type things," Bergman said. "There was no motivational speech at all."
The speech reportedly turned graphic and included instructions on how to perform oral and anal sex and included several curse words, Bergman said.
Students apparently were told to keep the contents of the speech secret, Bergman said.
"There was no motivational speech at all"? Depends on how you define "motivation," we guess.
