Harmony McKenzie, 4, makes her presence known as she attends the March to Fund Safe Schools last Saturday with her grandmother, Katina Harris, president of the Richmond Education Association. About 100 people walked from William Fox Elementary School on Hanover Avenue in The Fan to Monroe Park calling
for funding to upgrade or replace Virginia’s aging schools. Before the march, Ms. Harris paused to support a bake sale benefiting the Fox School community in the wake of the Feb. 11 fire that destroyed the building. The school opened in 1911. Many of those attending the march called for a new George Wythe High School to replace the decaying school building in South Side that opened in 1960. Harmony attends the pre-school at Mary Scott School in North Side.
