On February 14, 2018, a gunman claimed the lives of 17 students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
As a call to Congress to keep us safe from gun violence, the Scranton Knight community, along with other high schools across the nation, peacefully protested and honored the 17 victims of MSD High School during a National School Walkout on Wednesday, March 14th, one month to the day this senseless act occurred.
Students, faculty, staff and administration came together in the halls of Scranton High School for 17 minutes, to honor the 17 victims who died from gun violence during school in Parkland.
Students paid $1 dollar to wear maroon, the school color of MSD. A donation of $1000 was made to the MSDStrong Foundation.
We at Scranton High School are honored to have had a day where we were able to “Stand with Parkland,” and we hope that this movement will help aid us in keeping our schools safe.
