Guidance hangs posters denouncing stereotypes

Elizabeth Schraeger, Staff Writer

There are new posters being circulated throughout the school informing students about racial stereotypes and slurs. These posters were inspired by posters seen at UNI by guidance counselor Sue Baker.

After obtaining permission from Principal Brent Riessen for the template, the guidance staff decided to do the same thing. They printed and framed the posters and had them put all over the school.

“Stereotypes are are out there and sometimes you are unaware of what you’re thinking or saying,” Stephanie Guthrie, guidance counselor, said. “These posters are for awareness and for people to realize what they are saying or thinking may not be the actual truth.”

Find these posters in hallways, in line for a la carteĀ and across from the guidance office.
