Whitmer students prove to be classy
In view of the problems with bullying in homes, schools, workplaces, and government, those wonderful students at Whitmer High School showed us how to be honorable citizens who care about each other (“Teen with Down syndrome gets royal treatment; Whitmer High cheerleader elected homecoming queen,” Oct. 8).
The students elected Bethany Wissler, a student with Down syndrome, their homecoming queen for 2013, with the help of Grace Haskin, her best friend.
We would do well to emulate those students.
