West High Teacher Had Strong Recommendations

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The West High P. E. teacher under investigation by the FBI and Montana Internet Crimes Against Children reportedly came to Billings from Livingston with great recommendations. That's according to Scott Nichols' personnel file released earlier this week.

In one recommendation, the principal of the school said Nichols "always looks to do the right thing."

Another recommendation says "he is one of the better coaches we have... who understands what we are here to do for kids."

The investigation of Nichols centers around the inappropriate use of school computers. School District Two Superintendent Terry Bouck said last week that the issue of child pornography was brought up during his meeting with Billings Police Chief Rich St. John. Earlier this week, the school board followed Bouck's recommendation and voted unanimously to not renew Nichol's contract.
