Ritenour Game Changers Plan Protest at Ritenour High School on June 20
The entire Ritenour School District community is invited to participate in a non-violent protest and march organized by the Ritenour High School Game Changers on Saturday, June 20, 2020. The Game Changers, a student-led organization, are asking everyone interested in attending the event to arrive at Ritenour High School at 4 p.m. The march will begin at 4:30 p.m. and will include speakers and a moment of silence. The march will travel from Ritenour High School (9100 St. Charles Rock Road) along St. Charles Rock Road to McKibbon Road before returning back to the high school. Speakers will address the crowd on Moore Field.
The Game Changers have been working with St. John Police and district administrators to create a safe and family friendly event. For the safety of all involved due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group asks everyone to wear masks.
The mission of the Ritenour High School Game Changers is to bring awareness to their peers and community, and have courageous conversations on race and other social justice issues followed by action within the school and greater community.
“Our Huskies are making a difference in their community on a daily basis through our Student Leadership and Game Changers,” said Ritenour Superintendent Dr. Chris Kilbride. “We remain committed to supporting and working together with students to address their concerns with fairness, dignity and respect. I continue to be very proud of our students and look forward to the positive changes they will make here in Ritenour and beyond.”
