We were so excited to hear that Watauga County School System’s, Interim Superintendent, Dr. David Fonseca had approved the American Legion’s generous donation to help students with American History that we were encouraged to pay it forward as well.
Originally reported by the Watauga Democrat, the school decided not to allow the “In God We Trust” posters on the advice from their attorney. See story here. About a week later, the school board after hearing from the public and finding a North Carolina law to bolster their position – decided to allow the posters.
Already this has made the headlines at TheFriendlyAtheist site and we are sure that this most recent offer to the Watauga County schools will bring forth more exciting news.
The Myth Understood Alliance and specifically the Atheists On Air heathens have donated the funds to the WNC Humanists for the procurement of some American History posters for the Watauga County schools.

childhood indoctrinationeducational donations based on the same NC Statute they used to approve the other posters.” ~ Cash Wilson
N.C. General Statute 115C-81(g)(3a) allows for the posting of images and documents that reflect U.S. History in public schools.
When the President of the WNC Humanists, Jennifer Lovejoy heard about the flip flopping of the school boards decision she was excited.
“I’m so excited!!!! This is an awesome day!!!” ~ Jennifer Lovejoy
This morning, 11/19/2013 we sent a letter to the Interim Superintendent with our offer to provide the posters for all schools in the Watauga County district. We shall soon see if the school board, superintendent and the supporters of the posters offered by the American Legion did in fact make this decision based on the ideas of teaching children American History or IF THEIR MOTIVES are of a sneakier persuasion – such as religious indoctrination and attempts to tear down the wall of separation.
Either way, the WNC Humanists and the Myth Understood Alliance are happy to provide posters that teach American History or to sue the school system on the basis of religious discrimination (if declined).
