PCHS Students Protest Teacher and Curriculum Cuts

Monday was a typical day for classes at Pocahontas County High School under a clear but cool blue sky.  But the students, it was anything but typical.  As I drove past the high school entrance I could see most of the student body in the parking lot, with homemade protest signs and a definite sense of purpose in the air.  I spoke with several students about what was going on.

That was Noah Nutter, Ramona Hardy, Riley Pollack and Trenton Brock, all PCHS students participating in a school walkout in protest of cutting teaching positions and STEM classes at the high school next year.  Stay tuned to Allegheny Mountain Radio for more from the students and faculty.
