Unity Starts With 'U'
Students from Crete-Monee High School and Kankakee High School (District 111) smile for a photo as a sign of solidarity after meeting with coaches and superintendents from both districts last week. The boys were in a slight altercation after a basketball game on February 2 stemming from a longstanding rivalry between the two teams. District 111 Supt. Genevra Walters and Supt. Ron Patton met with the boys, their principals, and coaches to broker a peaceful resolution to the issue with amazing results. “Before it was over, they were shaking hands and smiling,” said Supt. Patton. “I applaud Supt. Walters and her staff for working along with us to teach our students the importance of talking through their differences,” he added.
