Letter: Benefits of Willmar schools

As a recent graduate from the Willmar Public Schools, I strongly encourage Willmar residents to "Vote yes twice."

During my years in the Willmar Schools I received an educational experience that benefited me in and outside of the classroom. The availability of AP classes and extracurricular activities such as cross-country, track and speech were opportunities that helped shape my character and helped build a positive impression toward Willmar to a state and even a national audience.

They also made for an easier transition to Luther College, where I am now a junior.

I feel strongly that opportunities such as these need to be available to future Willmar High School students so they also will be well prepared for college or whatever their post-secondary plans may be.

With this in mind, I strongly encourage everyone to vote yes twice and support the upcoming levy referendum.
