Columbia Students Say #NeverAgain, Walk Out of Class

Mar 14, 2018

Thousands of students from across Columbia Public Schools walked out of class Wednesday to remember the victims of the Parkland, Florida, shooting last month.

It was part of a national, student-driven walkout. Walkouts were held outside at Rock Bridge, Hickman, Battle and Douglass high schools and mostly inside at the public middle schools. Middle and high school students walked out at the private Columbia Independent School as well. At Father Tolton Regional Catholic High School, a Mass was dedicated to ending violence.
