It was through these students that awareness grew for the need of quality education that most students enjoy now.” The Wolmer’s Boys student continued on to say. “Some people say that true change is only brought about through struggle and these students have bared this struggle for us all. They are true advocates and quite frankly as a youth leader, but even before so as a student, I believe that it is absolutely necessary that we pay homage to these students in celebration of this day”.
