Although several Eastside Catholic alumni have said they will stop financial support of the institution, the school's hands are tied as the firing was ordered by the Seattle Archdiocese.
    Eastside's spokesman, Mike Patterson, referred to Zmuda, as an "exemplary" administrator.
     On Wednesday, walkouts and sitins effectively shut down Eastside; the protests also spread to other Seattle Catholic schools.
