Bring Back Hickory High/Middle School Marquee

This petition had 317 supporters

Our high school and middle school campuses do not have a marquee.  A couple of years ago the marquee was vandalized and the previous high school principal had the entire structure taken down. Our schools - both HMS and HHS - sit very far back from the road, and it is really hard for visitors to see the schools. Many visitors have said that they've driven right by the school because they were looking for the school marquee and didn't see one. A marquee will also help us advertise school events. Let's bring it back and make it even better.  The new marquees are LED and cannot have the messages changed by vandals.  Let's stand out and let our entire community know about the good things happening in our schools. As it stands, the Chesapeake School District will not approve a marquee for us because the last one was vandalized and taken down.  They are saying we cannot have an LED one or a changeable letter one like we have had in the past. They will only put up a brick wall with our school name on it. That is unfair to our children and to us as parents.  Let's show some Hawk Pride and band together for a great cause!
