  • As a High School graduate, I want to be able to go to my high school gym and play basketball in the summer with my friends to stay in shape. Basketball and every other sport that can be played in the gym is a great method of exercise. Health is one of the leading issues not only in this town but in the United States as well. Taking away district owned basketball gym’s is taking away our biggest and most impactful way to exercise and stay in shape. Not only that but taking away these gym is also depriving athletes from practicing against others to stay in shape. And the reason why these gym’s were forbidden for high school graduates in the first place is one that has discriminatory roots to it. A former high school graduate was caught with drugs in his vehicle outside the gym. Because of this, the district assumes every graduate acts in the same non responsible manner. I don’t believe that every graduate should be punished for this, and I believe this rule should be overturned. If the district see’s that an overwhelming majority agrees with me, than we can possibly have the opportunity to use these gym’s again.
