Students Stand Up

Madison Hamilton and Jordan Vellmure, Reporters On April 20th, students chose to let their voice be heard again, and took another stand in a “walkout” protest against gun violence.   The walkout was organized by juniors Cecelia Kujawa and Hannah Krabbenbos.   “The turnout was a lot better than I expected,” junior Cecelia Kujawa said. “Especially since we couldn’t organize it as well as we did the last one.”   Various students walked out of the building at 10 a.m. and walked the track with posters and loud voices to show the community.    “It’s already changing the school’s security,” Hannah Krabbenbos said, “because now we are trying out the ALICE program.”   While both walkouts were organized by students, they did it for many different reasons.   “I wanted to organize it because it’s extremely important to me, and I feel it’s actually making a difference…” Kujawa said.   Although there were less students who participated there were more who wanted to help organize it.   “I wanted to help organize because I feel strongly about the subject…,” Krabbenbos said.   The students of RHS are not the only kids downriver walking out.   “I think it’s a good sign and the future is in good hands with this generation of high schoolers,” Kujawa said.
