Hundreds Participate in Walkout at Eastmont High

Hundreds of Eastmont High School students, staff along with community members and younger students participate in the National School Walkout. Senior Richmond Rodriguez helped organize the event.

The students marched in silence to show respect to the victims of the Parkland, FL high school shooting and to demonstrate their seriousness.

Senior Zach Hammond says they had a pretty lofty goal.

Principal Lance Noell says the whole idea of the walkout was student driven which is why it was so important.

  1. You give me hope! An old man (88) who came of age in a gun culture where deer hunting was as a way of life in small town Alaska. And is totally at a loss to understand today’s insanity created by the gun owners of my beloved country. To a feeling of fear for the future of his country as it has lurched forward with no sign of effective opposition in sight. And now your generation has come along to take the bull by the horns and change all that. I wouldn’t miss marching with you on the 24th as the next step forward toward ending this age of madness. I look forward to your success in the days ahead.
