Milestone Christian Academy: The Last Word

Share on Nextdoor

The Kansas City Star ran its in-depth piece on the hoops school Milestone Christian Academy and its suspended pastor/principal/coach, Peter Flournoy in yesterday’s paper.

High school sports reporter/columnist Candace Buckner details some of the promises (laptop computers, for instance, and Adidas uniforms) Flournoy made to basketball recruits and their parents. According to the story, Flournoy didn’t deliver on the promises.

Buckner also reveals that Flournoy went AWOL from the U.S. Army and may have misrepresented his education and training.

She reports that Milestone’s rolls have dwindled to about 20 students, from 65 earlier this year. Buckner also says that the boys’ varsity basketball team now features three foreigners: two Colombians and a seven-foot Serb.
