Jefferson students Walk Out in support of teachers

Jefferson students showed everyone today how a great walk out looks like. Full of passion, energy, determination, spirit and guts, they walked out of Jefferson High School around noon today, taking over one lane of Killingsworth. Police cars soon appeared and followed them, but fortunately, the cops remained in their cars and didn't intervene.
