SAVE THE EDINA HORNETTES!!! THE EDINA HORNETTES HAVE BEEN AN ICONIC ONGOING TRADITION IN EDINA FOR ALMOST 60 YEARS! THE EDINA SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION HAS ATTEMPTED FOR OVER 19 YEARS TO ELIMINATE THE HORNETTES, AND THE HARASSMENT HAS GOT TO BE BROUGHT TO AN END, ONCE AND FOR ALL !!
HORNETTES HAVE REPRESENTED EDINA IN THE MOST POSITIVE LIGHT, YEAR AFTER YEAR, DANCING PURELY FOR THE LOVE OF THE THEIR SCHOOL! DISPLAYING THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF SCHOOL SPIRIT AND A REAL PASSION TOWARDS THEIR CHOOSEN SPORT...DANCELINE!
WHY SHOULD THESE GIRLS HAVE TO WORRY YEAR AFTER YEAR THAT THE SPORT THAT THEY HAVE CHOSEN AND WORKED SO HARD TO KEEP THE LEGACY ALIVE, IS IN CONSTANT JEOPARDY OF BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM?
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS?
