Guam - Students at George Washington High School won't stay quiet any longer.

In Governor Eddie Calvo's weekly address, he features GW senior Kanani Arriola who speaks on just how dangerous the crammed campus can get.

"There's close to 2,700 students who attend GW. If you want to know what that's like, imagine the Micronesia Mall on a Saturday afternoon then multiply everyone inside by five. That's how crowded it gets between classes and at other times," he said.

Arriola says her hopes are that CoreTech converted into a central campus could cut the GW population in half and make the Mangilao school a safer place for everyone.

She asks that everyone play their part among our elected leaders to solve this problem.
