High school students replaced sign

Leadership students were upset by vandalism to sign in front yard.

Dear Editor:

We have a very large wooden name sign in our front yard – it’s a sentimental name sign from a deceased brother – that was recently vandalized by the senseless act of spray painting it with red lettering.

While upset at this stupid act, we were amazed and pleased by the reaction.

First there were many people that offered advice on how to fix it and expressed their outrage at such stupidity.

We were advised by the police that the ones responsible had also defaced several other public places.

Now, imagine our delight when we were approached by Nick Kast, our Summerland Secondary School wood working teacher, who said the students in the leadership class were also upset by the vandalism to our sign, they felt it “just wasn’t right” and wanted to fix it.

We accepted their kind offer and they are restoring our beautiful name sign.

We tell people who complain about youth not respecting much these days about these young people who took it upon themselves to right a wrong.

We applaud them and thank them.

Our future in this world is indeed in good hands – at least for the most part.  So a thump on the head to those misguided miserable cretins in the first place and a huge pat on the back to the leadership students at Summerland Secondary School and Nick Kast, our sincere thanks.

Barbara and Orv Robson
