Garinger students decided to take matters into their own hands on Friday, February 24th by walking out of school to protest Trump’s immigration policy and the recent arrests that has been made due to immigration status. After 1st block many students gathered and began to talk towards the front of the school, while law enforcement was called and while many students went back to class, 100 students still walked out off.
Students walked from Garinger to Vance High School causing Vance to remain on lock down for the rest of the day. The walk which was 6.4 miles and took about 2 hours. As you can see in the picture above students brought the flags representing the countries they were from, in support of their protest.
Nice to see our very own Garinger Wildcats take a stand for something they believe in !

Missing black girls in DC causes viral outcry and awareness on social media. DC police have tweeted out several missing black teens within the district. On march, 19, 2017 a viral post sparked outrage on social media and in the United States capitol. The DC police are being called on to take action about the missing black girls in DC. The DC police say the rate of missing black girls in DC is sadly normal. The police department says most of the time it’s teen girls who run away from home and soon return. Although there are 37 minor cases still open of missing black/ Hispanic girls. I believe people on social media are putting false information out there that is sparking viral outrage. The number of missing black teens are sadly normal and typically the girls run away from home and return.
