The rain did not stop Jack Yates High alumni from gathering outside the front gates of the prized school to protest the building of a new Energy Institute in the community and the lack of programming within the school.
The band lacks uniforms, the school of communication is nearly non existent, cosmetology has been removed and so on and so on the list goes inside Yates. The heavily involved alumni association has had enough and gathered in protest before a development meeting with School Board Trustee Paula Harris.
Below is footage of the rally.
Alumni Gary Monroe is speaking.
Story still developing. #livereporting #thsoriginalnewsreport
