  • Young America's Foundation Supports Jared Marcum!

    Congratulations Jared!

    Young America's Foundation would like to congratulate Jared Marcum for "sticking to his guns" and standing up for his rights!

    Seventy days later, the charges against 14-year-old Jared Marcum have been dropped.

    Logan Middle School band teacher, David Burroway, commanded Jared to turn his NRA t-shirt inside out because he believe the hunting rifle was offensive to the other students. Jared refused the teacher's outrageous demand, and ended up in the principal's office.

    His t-shirt did not violate the school policy. Mr. Burroway was in clear violation of Jared's First Amendment rights. All Jared wanted was a chance to tell his side of the story, but he was silenced by threats of a terrorism charge. Three police officers fled to the scene and Jared was handcuffed for "obstructing an officer."

    Jared was facing up to a $500 fine or a year in juvenile detention. Thankfully, all charges were dropped. Jared's attorney, Ben White, plans to move forward with a civil suit against the Logan County School District.

    Although the dismissal should have come sooner, we can only hope that this will be a lesson to school districts everywhere.

    Hillary Cherry is the Program Officer of Public Relations and also a recent graduate of Purdue University.
