Sturgeon Bay High School was one of hundreds of schools around the country participating in the student walkout this past Wednesday, with the goal of sparking conversation and igniting change. Sophomore Jadacey Teska organized the walkout with over 50 students participating. Teska says that she organized the event because she feels that students don’t have many opportunities to speak out and haven’t been taken seriously when they do.
Teska adds that the focus was not anti-gun and that mental health is another issue that needs more awareness. Teska plans to take part in a walk in Madison near the end of the month that students from across the state are organizing with the movement as well. Students at Sturgeon Bay also wrote letters to their representatives as part of the demonstration.
