On Wednesday, March 14, CHS students were invited to participate in a walk out to honor the lives of the 17 victims who were killed in the Stoneman Marjory Douglas High school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The SGA organized the event which lasted 17 minutes, one minute for each victim. Both indoor and outdoor walk outs were held and open to all students. Students who wished to abstain from the event were invited to sit in room 107. The walkout served as the first step in CHS 17, a larger movement that will consist of 17 workshops and events that will promote a safe school environment throughout CHS. Blot photos by Delia Noone.
