Dr. Kent Medlin is known around Willard, Missouri, as one of those guys who speaks from his heart.
For the past 14 years, he's been the superintendent of schools. He's a good man, a Christian man.
Last May, Dr. Medlin delivered an address during commencement exercises at Willard High School. And being a Christian man, it was not all that surprising when he referenced the Bible and the Lord and invited folks to join him in prayer.
The Springfield News-Leader reported on the superintendent's remarks. He used an acronym, GUTS - for grit, understand and teamwork. It was the "s" that got him in trouble.
