Local high school graduation rates remain above state average

Helping more students to get a high school diploma is just one necessary step. The second is preparing them sufficiently to deal with the responsibilities and academic challenges of college.

Several shark species have been severely depleted. It's hard to get an accurate population count of shark, and the scientists disagree on how badly some species are depleted, but it sounds like an excellent reason to stop killing tournaments and require catch-and-release for all tournaments.
