Students Speak Out: Part 3 of 3

Charles City Comets

CHARLES CITY- Four Charles City High School seniors not only want to inform other students about proposed school facilities plans, but they also want to send a message to the school board.  Megan Joerger (YEA-ger), Alicia Ruzich (RUSE-ek), Madison Winterink and Jackie Foster recently created a Facebook group called “The Power of Purple, but We Still See Red” regarding the school facilities project.  All four ladies are in favor of a single campus option for grades 6-12.

When asked what they would like to say to school board members, Alicia Ruzich says:

Megan Joerger says she feels that the new board members are more concerned with saving a building and refuse to listen to dissenting opinions.

Jackie Foster says one day she wants to raise a family in Charles City, but she wants the best opportunities possible.

Tune Monday during the noon hour to hear the interview with student’s in its entirety.
