Instead of 17 minutes, students at Washington High School stood outside in 29 degree weather for 20 minutes. Senior Lauraine Davidson, who helped organize the walkout, led students with chants of, “No more silence, stop the violence.”
 

  She said each of the extra three minutes students stood outside honored one of three 17-year-olds killed by guns in the area, since the beginning of 2018. Among those teens was a Washington High Student, Tysiona Crawford.
