Stay UNI-fied!

Glen Casey and Matt Gilliam

Glen Casey and Matt Gilliam, seniors in University City High School, are captured here waiting to speak at the Philadelphia School District’s School Reform Commission Meeting on December 20, 2012.  Four our students spoke before the SRC panel:  Russell Davis (Class of 2015), Matt Gilliam (Class of 2013), Evynn Pendergrass (Class of 2014), and Christian Warwick (Class of 2013).

With the help of his colleagues, Glen Casey (who was on last summer’s Leaders of Change Street Team), told the SRC that they were testifying in defense of more than a school building, “we’re fighting to preserve our community.”  To hear what some of our students had to say, listen to the December 20, 2012 radio segment on The Philadelphia Public School Notebook’s blog.
