Governor Inslee Visit to Ingraham

Seattle Public Schools (SPS) and Ingraham High School were pleased to host Governor Jay Inslee today as he met with students and staff.

Gov. Inslee, who is a proud Ingraham graduate, initiated the meeting. He wanted to connect with some of those impacted by last month’s tragic event, when a student was killed by gun violence at Ingraham High School.

Governor Jay Inslee, Mayor Bruce Harrell, and Superintendent Brent Jones met with students and staff for a small group discussion.

Ingraham Principal Martin Floe and Superintendent Jones made brief remarks prior to introducing the governor.

The discussion, which lasted approximately 45 minutes, was led by Gov. Inslee. “The sense of sorrow – this tragedy has resonated across the state,” said Gov. Inslee. “It was a shock to the system, it was a shock to me. Your grief is shared across the state of Washington. The Ingraham story is not just this tragedy. It is much more than that…you have a right to feel positive about being a part of the Ingraham family.”
