Editor: Point Loma High School Alumni are responding to a plea for help from a 2010 graduate, Will Barton, who was injured recently by a random act of violence. His plight has sparked a Random Act of Kindness which is characteristic of our Pointer community. Alumni, students, parents and local businesses are all involved in this effort and the OB Rag wants to ensure that the word gets out to anyone who may wish to help.
Will Barton: 2010 graduate of PLHS needs our help
Will Barton was critically wounded on Monday night the 29th of October when a fugitive on a rampage shot him in the head while he was walking to his father’s house after getting off work.
Will has been fighting for his life and the doctors are hopeful he will survive. He has a long road ahead of him and needs our help.
Will Barton went to San Francisco State University and was most recently attending San Diego City College.
