Pittsburgh Public Schools and Wilkinsburg School District have agreed upon an educational partnership to start next school year, where Wilkinsburg students in grades 7-12 will attend Pittsburgh Westinghouse.
Seated at a table in a conference room inside Pittsburgh Westinghouse, student leaders met on Friday to swap their stories about their hopes and expectations for the 2016-2017 school year.
From Pittsburgh Westinghouse sat Junior Class President Mya Alford, 16, and Sophomore Robert Montgomery, 15. On the other side of the table were Wilkinsburg Freshman Annette Payne, 15, Junior Sehshay Turner, 16, and Shawn Stubbs, 16, also a junior.
Straight out of the gate, Turner, in a calm voice said, “I just want to learn.”
