On May 7th, during a typical afternoon pick up on the road outside of Westlake Charter School, WCS parent Jimmy Turner was beaten and seriously harmed while protecting another parent who was trying to de-escalate a serious case of road rage by the driver of the car in front of her. When Jimmy saw the driver get out of his car to aggressively approach the woman who was trying to calm the situation, Jimmy jumped to her support hoping to calm the man down himself. Instead, Jimmy was beaten and kicked, in full view of other parents, students and staff, sustaining serious injuries. Westlake Charter School was founded on core values that include Respect, Excellence, Responsibility, and Confidence... all of which Jimmy demonstrated when putting himself in harms way to protect another individual. Another Westlake Charter School core value is Community. We hope, with this page, the Westlake Charter School community and friends, family, and community members can come together as one Community to support Jimmy and thank him for his brave actions. Moving forward, in addition to medical bills, Jimmy's family faces legal fees. Filing a restraining order for a private citizen is $400! We would love to raise money to support a parent who is so deserving. We do not want his family to sacrifice for his heroism. Thank you for considering a donation that will support a wonderful Westlake Charter School parent.
