I am writing to say how proud I am to live in the Osceola school district. I attended the Gender Identity program presented at the Osceola High School on January 15. The student led inclusion group did a good job organizing and leading the program. Dr. Todd Savage from the University of WI, River Falls did a good job explaining about transgender students. His informational program was followed by Leslie Lagerstrom explaining her family’s experience with their transgender son. It was so difficult to hear about the torment her son endured in his school. No child should have to endure any harassment or bullying because they are different.  It is encouraging to know that the OSD nurtures an environment of acceptance for all students, regardless of their ‘sameness’ or ‘differentness’.
