ROY - A minorities-only assembly at Roy High School has raised some eyebrows among some of those who did and who did not attend.
The assembly took place on Oct. 29. It was a motivational speech by a then-candidate for city council, but that wasn't what raised so much concern. It was the message some feel the school sent: one of exclusion.
Still, students outside campus Monday had mixed feelings about it all. One student said he was invited but chose not to go.
"It makes me feel under most people ‘cause they say ‘minorities,' minor, under," he said.
Another student said there are many minority groups--from ethnic minorities to those who are on the honor roll--all of whom have special events. He didn't think much of all the fuss.
