HUGOTON, Kan. – Two Hugoton High School teachers have been fired after district officials said marijuana was discovered on the school campus.
Superintendent Mark Crawford says social studies teacher and wrestling coach Brent Mahan and art teacher Doug Waters were notified April 1 that the school intended to fire them.
Crawford says the board accepted Mahan's resignation on Tuesday. Waters is currently pursuing his appeal. Mahan and Waters had been suspended since the first week of March.
The Garden City Telegram reports Mahan says he was surprised to be fired but had no further comment. Waters declined to comment.
Crawford said Morton County Attorney Eric Witcher is leading an investigation to determine if any charges will be filed.
