Equality at HHS
We support making HHS a place for everybody. Just one instance of racism is enough to make people feel unsafe. The safe and welcoming environment that we all want to work towards is ruined, and we become incapable of cooperating. Getting along and working together is simply more important than the things that make us different. As students, we need to protect our cooperative ability. It is not difficult to help achieve this goal.
Our high school is one of the most diverse schools in Henderson County. We all come from different backgrounds. We know that our diversity is something special about our school and that we are better because of it. It is important at HHS that we can accept each other and allow others to enjoy being at school. If you go to Hendersonville high school, you belong here. The purpose of this petition is to recognize issues within our school and commit to actively work to make others feel welcome at our school. It must be made very clear that Hendersonville is a place of tolerance. The school faculty will not do this. We are the only ones who get to decide the culture at HHS. We will make it whatever we want it to be.
