“In our hearts we will cherish, steadfast forever, Meyers High!”
Meyers eighth-grader Joshua Schiowitz said it best when he pointed out “Meyers endured the Great Depression, and has stood the test of time”
True enough Meyers High should be “steadfast forever”, and could truly stand the test of time. We all know the building was built to last.
It has stood strong for over 80 years, and has overcome:
- Many Storms
- 2 Major Floods
- Even an Earthquake
The building has also endured much neglect, misuses, and abuse by not only it students, and facility, but by the School Board Members, and Superintendants both past and present that swore to protect it.
God knows the building could even survive a Nuclear Blast after all that is likely why Meyers was designated as a Nuclear Fallout Shelter, but what it cannot seem to escape is the corrupt political climate that seems to run ramped around these parts.
Board President Mary Anne Toole Said “There was never a plan to vote on the closing Meyers”, and Superintendant Namey demanded to know where this rumor started.
I will tell you where, with you that's where. It's time to Wake Up School Board. If a renegade board member introduces a vote, and it’s then seconded by another Dolt on the Board then, even when the motion fails, and a study commission is formed ONLY to “explore options” it still sends up a smoke signal to the community that something is happening.
Wake Up Wilkes Barre, Pay close attention to what your elected officials are doing, and what they are standing up for, or shall I say who they are standing up for.
Wake Up Wilkes Barre would like to thank the fallowing officials for standing, not only with us last night, but most importantly staying true their your convictions, and truly representing the people.
- Luzerne County Judge William Amesbury
- Wilkes Barre City Mayor Thomas Leighton
- Wilkes Barre City Official Greg Barrouk
- Wilkes Barre City Councilman George Brown
- Wilkes Barre Area School Director Lynn Evans
Sincerely thank you, and as always Wake Up Wilkes Barre
