Student led walkout creates conversation
Over 650 students across CISD campuses honor the 17 lives lost in the Parkland shooting
March 9, 2018
At 10 a.m. yesterday, more than 100 students walked out for 17 minutes in response to the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla. The gathering was led by Alanna Miller (11) and Anika Shah (11) with Katie Silverman (12) who spoke about her personal experience with the Parkland shooting. It began with powerful speeches, a song by members of CSHS choir, a butterfly release to symbolize each victim and ended with a moment of silence. Media were not allowed on campus but there was a CBS Dallas helicopter live-streaming the event above campus.
