Parents, Students and Community Members Mobilize To Save Emerson Junior High

The Vanguard made a brief stop on a busy day to Stonegate Country Club, where a group of parents, community members, and children were preparing posters for a planned protest on Tuesday, at 4 PM at Central Park.

The hopes of these protesters is to keep Emerson Junior High School open amid a budget crisis with the school board tentatively planning to close it pending more formal decisions coming as early as this Thursday.
