Sharing Our Students' Voices and Moving Forward Together

Author: Erin Hoffmann Harding

Dear Students,

In the midst of the challenges all of our students have faced since March, many in our community but especially our Black students are now in anguish because of the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery - the latest tragedies in a long list of precious lives needlessly and brutally taken.
