June 9, 2015
Dear Dr. Bendicsen;
Though I have enjoyed the past 25 years teaching, coaching and working in the guidance department at Tippecanoe Valley High School, I feel I’m being called to serve this community in another capacity. I’m resigning my position as guidance counselor and head football coach effective on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015.
This community has been hit hard over the past several years with families struggling with broken relationships, poverty, addictions, abuse and with suicides. I truly believe I have an excellent opportunity as the Director of Business Development of the Crosswinds program through Lifeline Youth & Family Services to bring hope to these families. This community means a lot to me and I look forward to maintaining a great working relationship with this school corporation! With your blessing, I wish to continue to be a member of our Mental Health Task Force and our Probation Committee.
Thank you for all of the support you and this school community have given me and my family. I will forever cherish the time I spent with my students, athletes, and colleagues at Tippecanoe Valley.
Scott D. Bibler
