Students from across Dearborn took part in the Robert Cipriano Memorial Cross Country Meet on Friday, Oct. 19, at Ford Woods Park.

The meet honors former Dearborn Public Schools Business Services director Cipriano, who was killed in his Farmington Hills home in April. , as well as attacking other Cipriano family members.

Cipriano was known for his love of running by district employees and friends—a love he had hoped to spread to Dearborn students by facilitating the creation of a running program for middle school and, if possible, elementary students.

I am writing to you as a disappointed mom of a fourth grader who attends Lindbergh Elementary School, Kaeden Bryer. He joined the Cipriano Memorial XC Meet that was held last Saturday, October 19, 2013. His gym teacher is Mr. Murua. Kaeden finished the race in 6th or 7th place, as witnessed by Mr. Murua, and several friends and relatives. However, the results indicated his name was not on the computer list. It was a huge disappointment to Kaeden and his supporters that he did not receive the recognition he worked so hard for, including the medal. Apparently, there was some type of technical glitch with the bar code scanning and Mr. Murua told him there was nothing he could do. Kaeden’s efforts and support for his school should not go unrecognized. I would hate to see him disappointed and discouraged from participating in these types of events in the future. Is there any way the results of the first 10 runners of the race can be reviewed and recertified again? I have attached two files (pictures) for your review. Can you please investigate and advise me as to why the error occurred? How can this be prevented from happening again in the future? Thank you for your attention to this matter. Please reply at your earliest convenience.
