To the editor,

Yesterday, voters in the Palmyra-Eagle school district voted to dissolve their system. This result is truly tragic.

Marshall and Palmyra-Eagle were in the same conference 40 years ago. At that time, P. E. had a larger school population than Marshall.

This easily could have been our fate. I deeply appreciate Marshall School District residents for the passing of three/all school referendums. You folks cared enough to support our children during some tough times. I am so proud of this place.

While every kid deserves a great school, that school must be local.
