   Students across the Triangle walked out at 10:00 am on March 14 for 17 minutes, one minute for each of the people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Feb. 14.

  Broughton was prepared to walk out with the rest of the nation for National Student Walkout Day, when about one minute before the scheduled time Principal Ashburn made an announcement postponing the walkout.

  Many students were very upset by the announcement, as they were looking forward to walking out. The walk out efforts were led by seniors Luke Brizzolara, Tobin Petrie, Sanzari Aranyak, Jemima Liteli, and Clay Oxford. The students were planning on registering other students to vote in the 17 minutes that they spent out on the football field.

  An announcement will be made later regarding the new date of the walkout and students will be informed the reason for the postponement.
