A Davis High School parent wrote a letter to the editor that ran in the Davis Enterprise Wednesday, in regard to an offensive banner her daughter saw at a Davis High-Jesuit soccer game last weekend.
The banner was being held by Davis High supporters, but Superintendent Winfred Roberson said they are not current students.
The Enterprise has posted a photo of the sign, but you might not be able to view it because of the website's paywall. For that reason, we'll share the wording of the sign.
The sign said "Jesuit Loves Wieners," and it was carried around in front of the stands throughout the game by students dressed as hotdogs. The letter was written by Lisa Qvistgaard, who wrote that homophobic slurs were hollared throughout the game as well.
Visit the Davis Enterprise to see the photo and read the full letter, which was titled "Davis, Let's Take a Stand."
Qvistgaard wrote that DHS Principal Jacqui Moore said "Davis fans are well-known for being inappropriate and crass. She told me the school is taking great measures to educate the students about appropriate fan behavior."
She said she's appalled with the parents and administrators who didn't say anything to those holding the banner. She noted that it's Bullying Awareness Month and called the community silent bystanders.
