Okemos to Join Thousands of U.S. High Schools in National Walkout

Mar 13, 2018

It’s been nearly a month since the deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. 



On Wednesday, students from thousands of schools across the country will walk out of class for 17 minutes to honor those killed in Florida and protest what they see as a lack of action of stop gun violence. 


WKAR’s Kevin Lavery spoke with Melina Stone and Avery Neese, who are co-organizing the walkout at Okemos High School, one of several schools participating in mid-Michigan.
