Falcons big role models at Big Table

On Apr. 20, a select group of West students took part in the Big Table event along with all other public schools in the Quad Cities. Big Table was a a two-day event that sought to bring 5,000 people to 500 tables across the Quad Cities to discuss the future of the community. The event brought people from all over the community together to address issues and identify solutions. “There is nothing more empowering than bringing people together and hearing their thoughts and allowing them to speak to see how they change people’s behavior,” Nate Clark Vice President of the John Deere Foundation and the Associate Director of the Corporate Citizenship for John Deere said.
