A safe and secure environment

Dear Scecina Community,

Our hearts and prayers continue to go out to all those affected by the gun violence tragedy in Florida recently. Please pray that leaders throughout our country — in government, law enforcement, education, community service, and families — always strive to establish and uphold policies and structures that foster harmony, reconciliation, and safety as a result.

Mahatma Gandhi’s famous saying is so relevant: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Ensuring a safe and secure environment is a “24-7” responsibility for everyone everywhere.

We have invested financial resources in campus security enhancements in recent years, and we will continue to do so. Two weeks ago, we received grant funding for more security updates. Last week in The Weekly, Dr. Brettnacher wrote about important topics in school safety at Scecina.

You have likely heard the saying, “Prayer changes people, and people change things.” Please continue to pray for harmony, reconciliation, and safety in our hearts, homes, and world.

While complex issues are before us as a nation, many signs of hope and good will are in our midst. The coming weeks will include many opportunities to recognize our students for achievements in academics, the arts, and athletics at Scecina.

Thank you for supporting the ministry of Scecina Memorial High School.

Joe Therber
