Teacher and Coach Jim Echtle speaks out about students, teachers and schools:
Last spring, I had the honor of being chosen by the class of 2016, to represent the staff at their graduation. My speech highlighted the accomplishments of that class. Much of what I said about the class of 2016, can be said about the classes of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 that currently walk the halls of Toledo High School. Our students are tremendously successful and deserve community support in the construction of facilities commensurate with that success. The transcript of last year’s speech is below. If there was ever a student body anywhere that has earned the privilege of better facilities, it’s the students of Toledo High School. Please vote “yes” on our school’s bond. Ballots must be postmarked by tomorrow. Time is short. Please support our school. I believe that our kids have earned it.
