MARQUETTE — In honor of the 2nd National Walkout day Friday, education majors at NMU lent their free time to put on a fundraiser that is benefitting the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas shooting that happened on February 14th.
They hosted a fundraiser called Spell–Check for School Safety. Where the students peer edited essay papers for a minimum of a one dollar donation.
These future educators have had a few motivators that helped them put on this event.
“The identity they chose to sign up for three or four years ago, teacher. Has changed significantly, since the February fourteenth shooting. We’re all of a sudden trying to figure out what kind of safety measures were going to take in the public schools,” said Dr. Taylor Norman, Instructor at Northern Michigan University.
All the proceeds made at the event are benefiting the Stoneman Douglas Go Fund Me page. The organizers of Spell–Check for School Safety event want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting the cause.
