Marion Places Track Coach on Leave After Racial Comment

MARION – The Marion Unit 2 School District Monday placed Marion High School Girls Track Coach Sara Baker on leave after she allegedly made a “racially insensitive” comment toward a student last week.

The school district announced it’s investigating the incident and more information will be released when it becomes available.

Protesters and some students held a demonstration at the high school Monday. They are expected to be there again Tuesday.
