ECHS student to help lead March For Our Lives

SOUTHPORT — Brunswick Early College High School sophomore Nick Berry said he wasn’t very involved in politics before the Feb. 14 shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that killed 17 people.

But the tragedy served as a catalyst for Berry, who decided he had to create change somehow.

This Saturday, the 16-year-old will serve as one of the leaders of March For Our Lives - Wilmington NC.
