SKIATOOK, OKLAHOMA -- Controversy continues over administrative leaders at a Green Country High School.

A group of Skiatook students took their support for a suspended high school principal to the streets on Thursday. Students carrying signs protested the paid suspension of High School principal Donna Brogan.

"She was the only one who actually stood up for something she believed in and now we're standing up for her," Nicole Lee, a student.

"She's a support system for the school. She's been there for us, been there for the entire school," said Garrick Postier, a student. "She's always helped us out no matter what."

Some school district parents say Brogan is being punished for urging the school board to get rid of superintendent of schools Steve Williams, who took over for indicted superintendent Dr. Gary Johnson. Johnson is accused of wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars on overpriced janitorial supplies and security equipment.

"We Want Brogan Back Now," one sign reads. Another student asks, "Who is Williams really looking out for?"
