Understanding Mental Illness
Lexington High School
251 Waltham Street
January 29, 1985
Vanessa has maintained a rigorous curriculum of college preparatory
courses, earning a solid B grade point average and most recently a quite
impressive scattering of A marks in her second quarter of her senior year,
while many of her peers begin to regress.
Outside of school she has made many invaluable contributions to
Green Peace and the Humane Society's spade and neuter program.
Vanessa has been peer nominated the field hockey Captain. She has
maintained a positive attitude amidst a broken wrist and rigorous fall
curriculum. She is a natural leader, who single-handedly changed
raised money for new uniforms for the Lexington high school field hockey.
Whether Vanessa is studying for a Science exam or volunteering in
the community, Vanessa gives each task her heart and soul. I can state
with absolute certainty that Vanessa will make a tremendous contribution
to your field hockey program at the University of New Hampshire.
FORMAL COMPLAINT AGAINST UNH
I am Vanessa's mother Julia Plumb.. I have taught my daughter all
the qualities of being a lady and respecting justice. Vanessa is the victim
of a corrupt institution. Field hockey is just one short stop in her life's
journey, which she intends to use for in her attributes and manner for
the betterment and greater good of mankind.. .
I hold every possible administrative UNH employee including the office
of the President accountable for the actions in this investigation maybe
libel for possible criminal behavior. I am putting you on notice that my report
is correct and the truth. I have watched Vanessa slowly become increasingly
depressed and exhibit severe symptoms of anorexia and bulimia as a result
of being discriminated against for the clear infraction that she knownly
committed by smoking marijuana with 7 other girls from the UNH field
She was called for a random "Drug Screening" and tested positive. .
Vanessa's loyalty to her team lead her to lie in her statement to UNH
investigator Boner. Mr. Boner kicked Vanessa off the UNH women's field
hockey program. A boy, Rimon, who tested positive for marijuana, was
allowed to continue to play for the UNH men's filed hockey program.
I have discovered from my daughter's heart felt confession that she had
sexual relations with Rimon and shared the marijuana with him. I am willing
to sign an affidavit as is Vanessa that my report is truthful. There is clearly
an example of discrimination against my daughter Vanessa Plumb.
I have admitted myself for psychiatric evaluation .
The bullying at UNH drove me to try crack cocaine.
While under its influence I engaged in public nudity in
Down Town Portsmouth and had sex with a fire plug.
I was arrested for public indecency and am awaiting a court date. .
I want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day. I wish it had been a
better year for all of us mothers. I have been diagnosed pregnant.
I believe the father to be Rimon Makhlouf, the field hockey player.
I can only tell you how ashamed and truly sorry I am for my failure
in judgement and unforgivable things I have said to you. I spend hours
with a counselor discussing my options with my face wet with tears.
UNH has expelled me.
I know I will honor you by working hard to be a good mother to my
son Devo. I have accepted Islam and hope to marry Rimon. You taught
me a person does not have to feel ashamed for their mistakes. It is how
you handle mistakes that matters. You made it safe to tell the truth and
tried to help me problem solve...
