Rally To Graduate –Graduation Matters Missoula [AUDIO]


920 high school freshmen from five Missoula County public schools will gather at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning (9-27-11), on the turf of Washington-Grizzly Stadium at The University of Montana. The students will be attending the Graduation Matters Missoula Freshman Rally , which is the first-of-its-kind. Montana’s governor, Missoula’s mayor, UM’s president, Missoula County’s public schools superintendent, fellow students and educators will encourage students to graduate. My Interview with the Director of Public Affairs for Missoula County Public Schools, Lesli Brassfield is attached below.

Participating MCPS schools are Big Sky, Hellgate, Seeley-Swan, Sentinel and Willard Alternative. Students will be bused to the rally, which organizers intend to hold annually. Brassfield Says More than 2,000 Montana students drop out of school every year.
