I am a sophomore at Liberty High School. I feel that the secondary school start times are way too early for students. Myself as well as many other students and teachers see affects of these early start times on a daily basis, especially lack of sleep.

Since students often have other activities like sports and clubs, they often stay up at night working on homework and then have to leave ridiculously early in the morning to get to school.

Prior to Sept. 4, Liberty High School junior Mike Walter never played a down of high-school football.
Walter has made his name on the hardwood, starring on the Patriots’ varsity basketball team since he was a freshman. But this year, he decided to hit the gridiron, much to the delight of Liberty football coach Steve Valach.
