I’m writing because the recent article about homelessness in Walla Walla made several grossly inaccurate statements about our community, its services and misrepresented the drivers of homelessness here.
The nameplate “Domestic Science” above the door across the hall from my first-grade classroom in Iowa was my introduction to the word “science.” By the time I was 12 I definitely knew I wanted to be a part of that “Domestic Science.”
I don’t have that golden nugget of information or inspiration to send you directly to the “yes” box on your Walla Walla High School science building ballot.
