Today we as citizens of Wilson County have a choice to make plain and simple.
Much debate, discussion and discovery has been made on the condition, the safety and the overpopulation of our current Lebanon High School. The decision to be made is simple, will we provide a safe adequate environment for our children to learn in or will we say no?
Even though we know your needs as students are we going to fail to do as those who came before us in providing ourselves with an environment we could learn and excel in?
As President Obama spoke on the obligation, the duty the youth of America have in fulfilling their service to this country in obtaining an education, therein lies our obligation to provide the students with the tools to do so and tell them we are supporting you, providing for and meeting your needs as youth of Wilson County.
If the decision to vote yes is difficult for you, I ask that you go to older members in our community and ask how they provided for us and go to Lebanon High and look students in the face and tell them they are not worth a $25 yearly commitment from you and then go vote. There will be a clear message sent by the citizens of Wilson County on Thursday to our youth, to our community and to future citizens, businesses and industries. You hold the key as to what the message will read.
