An optional assembly will be offered at Mercer County High School on Wednesday and there will not be a student walkout. Junior Cal Bigham says the assembly will focus on student safety issues.
Bigham says the planned Mercer County walkout was never about gun rights and the second amendment and the assembly isn’t either, but he says others try to say that it is.
The assembly is for students only. Sherrard High School is allowing students to walkout for 17 minutes on Wednesday morning and the action is not considered an unexcused absence.
