Statesboro STEAM walks out together
Local schools show support for Parkland victims
Statesboro STEAM Academy charter school students Faith Torrence, 18, far right, Shannon Moore, 18, Jaycee Morgan, 17, and Meagan Mallard, 18, huddle together in a blanket and endure some chilly gusts while participating in Wednesday's National School Walkout in remembrance of the 17 people who died in the Parkland, Fla. school shooting and to raise awareness about school violence. Nearly all of the 168 students and all of the faculty participated as Director Corliss Reese urged everyone to help end school violence, not focus solely on gun laws.
The call went out just before 10 a.m. on Wednesday at the Statesboro STEAM College, Careers, Arts & Technology Academy: “Everyone grab your coats!” Students and faculty at the charter school filed out of the building and congregated in a sunny spot in the parking lot. Not for recess.
