CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham High students received high grades for their organization and participation in the walk-out conducted Wednesday morning as part of the National School Walkout to protest gun violence.

Hundreds gathered outside the front of Chatham High for the walkout, held one month after 17 students and teachers were killed by accused gunman Nikolas Cruz at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla.

Chatham High student Eitan Miller captured the event with photos and Bridget McGarry, Olivia Robertson and Lilly McGrath were among the speakers.

"I am very proud of how our students took charge of this event," Chatham High Principal Darren Groh said.  "While the focus was on the victims of the Parkland shooting, they also focused on the importance of looking out for one another, utilizing the mental health resources available at the high school, being informed about what's happening in our country and beyond, and being active in the conversation when change may be needed.

"The respect that our students demonstrated for the victims and this movement was impressive."
