Series of stories: Disabled students at Davis High

Published on Nov. 21 and Nov. 25, 2014, and March 10, 2015 for The HUB: With another student journalist, I investigated how our high school’s lack of a multi-purpose room impacted students with disabilities, who were forced to eat lunch in a small gym away from the rest of the student body during rainy days. We heard these students voice their desires to be more connected with their classmates, and our subsequent article and video prompted shock from our school and school board.

The board quickly approved the construction of a new building, which we reported. The design and construction process has taken several years, but the building, now called the All Student Center, is scheduled to open in January 2018.
