Students at Alleman High School have planned a candle-lighting memorial service to commemorate the 17 students and faculty members who lost their lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last month.
At 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, March 14, students and faculty will gather in the Alleman High School Morris Gym. Candles will be lit by Alleman students of the same grade as each of the victims. The school then will join the choir in singing “On Eagles Wings” to represent the Marjory Stoneman Douglas eagle mascot.
Student organizers approached the school administration to find a way to work together to honor the students that were lost. Alleman students wanted to show support in a peaceful way with high-school students everywhere.
Families are welcome. Visitors should check in at the main office before proceeding to the gym.
