Subject: ORMA Basketball Decision

Parents and Friends,

After 17 years of sacrificing my time with my family by coaching other people's kids and
helping them reach their goals, I have decided that I need to spend the rest of my coaching days
with my own children and insure that they can reach all of their goals. I am thrilled with the
hundreds of student-athletes that we have helped get to college and become solid members of
their communities. Our basketball family has become immense and I cherish those times and
will continue to enjoy those relationships that we have created going forward. But now, it is
important as a parent that I make a selfish decision and give as much time and effort to my own
children's athletic development as I have done for so many others. You don't get time back and I
don't want to have any regrets later in life that I missed out on my children's experiences.
Therefore it is with a heavy heart that I tender my resignation as basketball coach at Oak Ridge
Military Academy.

I would like to thank my entire coaching staff for their loyalty, support and sacrifices over the
years to help our players reach their goals. I would also like to thank the administration and
faculty at Oak Ridge Military Academy for their support and efforts to restore the school to
greatness. I would also like to thank my family for allowing me to coach so many young men
over the past several years and to hopefully make a difference in their lives.

Finally, I thank the parents for their support of our basketball program and Oak Ridge Military
Academy and I will do whatever it takes to insure that our seniors get to college and
underclassmen are best prepared for the rest of this school year and beyond.

Best regards,


Stan Kowalewski
