Senior Washburn reinstated to Los Alamos High School football team

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

The "Speech Theatre" at Los Alamos High was the backdrop to a different kind of drama Tuesday night as friends, family and well-wishers showed up at the scheduled school board meeting to show their support for high school senior Grant Washburn. Among the crowd of supporters was Washburn's dad, Gerry, who heads the school district’s human resources department.

Part of the board's agenda concerned the fate of Washburn's football career. Washburn was suspended from all extracurricular activities, including football, after a voluntary search of his vehicle Aug. 30 produced an empty baggy that subsequently tested for substances consistent with marijuana.

During the hearing, Washburn told the board that indeed, he left campus without permission to drop a friend off in another part of town. It was implied that it was this friend that left the rolling papers, two cigarette lighters and the empty baggy behind.

The board patiently heard two hours of testimony over whether to reinstate the star football player, and then took another hour to make its decision.

When all was said and done, the board decided to reinstate Washburn to the Los Alamos High School football team.
