Seniors encourage peers to take ownership of Yigo school

by Krystal Paco

Guam - While lawmakers discussed legislation relative to renovating and rebuilding Simon Sanchez High School, seniors at the Yigo campus are doing their part to care for the facilities they have today.

Known as "Project Inspire: A Leave Your Mark Project", the seniors are making presentations to influence their peers to pick up after themselves.

Senior Sophia Madlambayan said, "We're trying to instill in the underclassmen that this is very important and you should care because we're all sharing the space."

Following class presentations, students are asked to sign a petition to take ownership of their school.

As we've been reporting, these students have spent the last school year engaging the community in their fight for improved facilities, from inviting island leaders to walk in their shoes for a day to hosting rallies, they garnered enough attention to have the school shut down for a week to bring facilities up to regulatory standards.
