FREELAND STUDENTS WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES FREELAND - On Thursday, April 18, 2019, over 250 Freeland High School students will participate in a March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, & Gender Violence. The March, including students of both genders, will begin in the Burger King parking lot, at the corner of Freeland and Midland Road, in Freeland, at 9:45 am. From there, students will walk along Washington Road to Webster Road, and end at FHS. This March is the culminating activity of an FHS Student Council and Be the Change project to raise awareness about this issue, and support the Underground Railroad, an organization focused on providing shelter and services for the survivors of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault. Freeland High School teacher and organizer Jen Neal is excited about the interest that she is seeing from students to support this cause, and hopes that members of the community would join to march with the students or just come and cheer us on the sidelines. “We welcome anyone from the community that would like to join us and support this worthy cause.”
