Santaluces Chiefs Walk Out

Emma Koons and Zion Frost

In a show of solidarity, Santaluces Chiefs walked out of their classrooms in a call to action outdoor assembly during fourth period. They gathered in the bus loop to show their support for the protests that occurred across America. Students made posters and gave speeches begging for changes in legislation to prevent another mass shooting. Students were passionate about their speeches and why they were protesting. Assistant Principal Dr. Gideon encouraged students to raise their voices and chant slogans such as “Enough is Enough,” “Stop the Silence, End the Violence,” “17 is Too Many” and “No Justice, No Peace.” Students continued to chant as they made their way back to class.
