Connor Zink didn’t come to the Marion County Board of Education’s public forum Thursday evening prepared to speak.
But, the Lebanon Elementary School fourth grader bravely raised his hand anyway.
In a room full of adults, primarily local educators, Zink fearlessly walked up to the podium to talk about his school, but more specifically, what his school needs.
“Our classroom is where the art room used to be,” Zink told the crowd. “There wasn’t enough room for another teacher.”
