MORGANTOWN — Morgantown High School students made it clear they support their teachers by staging a walkout Feb. 21.

“Teachers deserve what they’re asking for,” Seth Dorkins, 15, said.

It was a high energy atmosphere as students cheered whenever another student walked out the front doors of MHS and across the street to stand with their peers.

The entire walkout lasted about an hour before students went back inside at the urging of teachers, Nicholas Chaffines, 17, said.

“Teachers were saying it might actually hurt their cause,” he said. “We want to stand with them no matter what.”
