Teacher who was fired by Catholic school gets a new job

I don't know if this qualifies as a happy ending or not. In March Skutt Catholic High School English teacher and speech coach, Matt Eledge, led his speech team to their fourth straight Nebraska state championship. Shortly thereafter he was terminated when the school learned that he was engaged to another man. A petition asking the diocese to retain Eledge garnered 17 thousand signatures.

The AP reports that Eledge will join the high performance Millard North High School faculty next school year. Millard North is in the southwestern part of the Omaha metropolitan area.
