Supporters of embattled Principal Thom-Cambell Amons are asking others to join them in signing a petition.
The petition is a response to claims that the Taylor Career Center principal canceled an adult cosmetology class at the school because he believed a student in the night class is gay.
Beaumont ISD released a statement saying the class was canceled due to budget problems and a lack of Beaumont ISD graduates attending the adult class.
The petition say Principal Amons has been falsely accused and that he goes above and beyond to assist students.
It reads that Amons has always been of high and fair moral standards and the accusations against him are unnecessary and unwarranted.
The adult cosmetology class has since been re-opened.
