Albion & Marshall high school students will be building relationships this weekend

Jul 26, 2013

About 250 Albion and Marshall high school students will spend the weekend getting to know one another.

The students are attending a weekend long ‘symposium’ at Albion college.

More than a hundred Albion students will be attending Marshall High School this fall.

Albion school officials decided to close their high school in a budget cutting move.

Jerri-Lynn Williams-Harper is Albion’s school superintendent. She says this weekend will help build relationships between the two student bodies.

“We are simply putting two groups of students together, that are not usually together, so they can figure out together how they will navigate their school,” says Williams-Harper.

Harper says the students will engage in a wide range of team building and other activities this weekend.
