The Vigo County School board voted on putting police officers in schools this Monday, but the meeting started off on a much lighter note. A guest from the country of Lotsofrainiatalked about the diversity lesson she taught VCSC elementary school students. Despite what the reader may think, this country is not located in the Pacific Northwest. It is also not located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
Miss Rainbow, who spoke with what might have been a southern accent, said Lotsofrainia was near Hawaii. She appeared before the school board wearing festive rainbow hat and a muti-colored tunic. A rainbow-colored belt completed the ensemble.
Other issues overshadowed Mrs. Rainbow's presentation on diversity. After Mrs. Rainbow the gave her speech, several students and staff members from Vigo County School Corporation gave a large card to Terre Haute Police Chief John Plasse. Plasse and Sheriff Greg Ewing came up with the proposal to put on-duty officers in city schools. Superintendent Tanoos thanked Miss Rainbow for her presentation and added that it would eventually not have to be taught.
