Dear Marian High School Board Of Trustees,
My name is Carmela Silvia and I am a freshman here at Marian High School.
Marian means so much to me and I hate that fact that I only had one year here.
It was my dream to graduate from Marian and now unless we as a community can come together, that dream will not come true, not just for me, but for so many others.
So for a moment here, I would like to list all of the experiences that I will never get to have here at Marian High School after this year unless something better is done.
These are just some of the experiences that will be taken away from happening if Marian closes.
Marian is truly the first school that I have ever been to that I feel fully welcome and safe in.
Having all of us students to transfer for next year means breaking many bonds between each other.
Marian is not only a school and a community, but it is a family, a family that does not want to be torn apart.
People may say that it is not as hard for the freshman class to leave and they may be right but that does not change the fact that hundreds of newly formed bonds are being broken, not only with each other but with the school itself.
All that I am asking to come from the Board Of Trustees is your support while we fight for our school and our family to stay alive.
