Julia was given an assignment that she was very excited about. She had to set a goal about something she was passionate about and execute it. She wanted to make it be about something bigger than herself. Julia chose to speak up about how decisions of the current board of education are affecting her as a student and address the board directly. She did so on Tuesday night. We are in awe of the courage of this 13 year old. If the speech seems rushed, that is because the restrictive public comment policy only allows for 60 seconds to address the board. The text of her speech can be seen at the end of the video. If you are a Douglas County voter, please vote for change. Vote Lemieux, Ray, and Vogel.
