Washburn Demands Justice - A Statement from WHS Student Council

The Washburn Student Council has published a statement about racial justice. Please click to see the full statement.

"We not only demand that community leaders address social injustices through systemic changes in the areas of police reform, voting rights & access, and economic disparities in our city, but we call on our whole school community do the following:

  • Commit to practicing anti-racism work at school and in our own personal lives;

  • Acknowledge and address the systematic problems in our own school system that create divisions and separations between white students and students of color;

  • Listen to and uplift the voices of students of color."

Tech Tips for Distance Learning and Beyond

WHS Class of 2020 students Nathaniel Mersy and Ben Anderson created a YouTube Channel called WHS Tech Tricks with tech trick tutorials for students to help Millers navigate distance learning. This channel is an IB Diploma CAS Project, and just one example of the fabulous work our Millers do as part of the IB Diploma Program.
