Return Patrick Humphrey to LACHSA sign now

For the past four years, the L.A. County High School for the Arts has been graced with the privilege of the enrollment of one particular student who has, in his academic and artistic studies, gone above and beyond the call of duty. This man has been awarded Theatre Student of the Year for three consecutive years (A feat not easily, or ever before accomplished). His name is Patrick Humphrey, and by a cruel twist of fate (be it politically motivated or otherwise) he has been expelled from the school he fought so hard to attend. No other student at LACHSA has the professionalism, brilliant intellect, and social grace of Mr. Humphrey, and to imagine a school devoid of this bright young man is impossible. LACHSA is not LACHSA without Patrick Humphrey.

The grounds for his expulsion were unjust. He was brought up on charges of possession of a deadly weapon. Patrick is a known fanatic of medieval and obscure ornamental weaponry, and the "Deadly Weapon" he has been charged with carrying was one single ninja star- an impractical weapon to say the least, even for one trained to use it. Patrick would never in his life use such an object for ANY malicious action. The only reason he was carrying it in the first place was that it was given to him as a gift, and he simply forgot to remove it from his backpack. Patrick has no history, EVER, of any kind of disciplinary offense and would NEVER harm a fellow LACHSA student, least of all on campus.

If you support Patrick, and would like nothing better than to see him returned to LACHSA to be with his peers and mentors, please sign this petition.

    A tragic over reaction to a terrific performer and harmless individual.

    I have known Patrick for relatively a short time...the period of one year, but in that time I have come to know him as a wonderful young man. To the arts, I have found him to be nothing but professional. While off stage, his whimsical nature is infectious

    As Patrick's godmother, I know it to be true that this young man would never purposely hurt another living thing, much less a human being, and especially a fellow student. I am appalled that this one incident, although serious in nature is causing the sch

    Come on! This is rediculous. When will schools learn that they must treat students as individuals, and not paint with broad strokes. 5 minutes with Patrick and you know him to be a great kid full of love in his heart, and a zest for life. He is not a crim

    I would think expulsion would only be used when no other option will do. If a student is without regret, is clearly a threat to others or themselves, demonstrates an amoral disinterested attitude, has multiple offenses, etc., dismissal would be appropriat

    I am a parent and Patrick has been to my house many times. He is a social young man and very good natured. The last thing he could be is a threat. He's a good kid. Let him back in the school he loves so much.

    Patrick is one of the finest and most responsible young men it's been my privilege to know.

    LACHSA would be making a HUGE mistake if Patrick is not allowed to come back to school. When he graduates, he will bring great honor to the school with his talent and fine qualities as a person.

    Patrick has been and continues to be a source of inspiration to me as both an artist and a person. I can't help but admit jealousy when it comes to both his talents and his success in friendship. Considering that he is one of the few people at LACHSA with

    In my opinion, once again, LA County, Arts High, and its administrators exhibit incredibly flawed judgement. Intent should mean SOMETHING. This is a kid who wants nothing more than to be at LACHSA and has NEVER been a problem child. While others have been
