To the Editor:

I have always loved history since I was in the first grade; it's my passion. I have worked so hard throughout school to prepare myself for the more advanced classes, getting advanced scores on my history OGTs.

I want to go to college to be a history professor and make people love it as much as I do. Since I was a freshman at Thomas Worthington High School, I planned on taking Advanced Placement European history. Then the year that I can finally sign up for it to further my education, my school steals this opportunity right from under my feet.

I am willing to do whatever it takes to get this course back in Thomas' curriculum. This class cut doesn't only affect me; it affects future students.

This course was the first Advanced Placement course to be brought to Thomas Worthington, starting in the 1980s. Why take it out now?

My classmates are just as upset as I am.

Please don't let my school take away this amazing opportunity away from me, that I worked so hard for and looked forward to for years.

Please help me get this class back in the Thomas Worthington curriculum.
