Steven De Los Santos turned in an application for the club in late February, according to Walker’s story. The Alliance was approved, but then Principal Wayne Marshall changed his mind and decided to send the request along to the superintendent.
The Clovis School Board voted to ban all non-curricular clubs from meeting on campus during school hours or using school resources to spread the word about meetings.
The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico got involved and demanded the Gay-Straight Alliance be approved—even as a non-curricular club. Albuquerque Pride, the state’s largest LGBT organization, drove down to Clovis to hold a demonstration. Last week, the Alliance was given the green light.
Student editor Walker’s article also addresses other LGBT concerns in Clovis.
