Share

Photos and videos of Wade's visit were posted all over social media on Wednesday.

"As someone out here in the public eye I'm proud to say I'm from this state because of you guys and because of the future of this world". Thank you for being generous with your time today!

Dwyane Wade has been active in his support for those impacted by the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland on February 14. "These young adults GET IT". "But we need to help elevate those opportunities and make sure people know there are solutions that can be engaged immediately".

The Heat was coming off games on back-to-back nights, including a 117-113 overtime road loss against the Washington Wizards, and had a day off Wednesday. The majority of student reporters from the school's TV production, newspaper, and yearbook were denied an audience with DeVos, according to one student. Student survivors of the shooting have said they plan to participate in marches in Washington and cities around the country on March 24 to continue the conversation about gun violence issues.

Wade been among many members of the team who have reached out to the shooting victims since it took place.

Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade has been vocal in his support for the school and has dedicated the rest of his season to Joaquin "Guac" Oliver, a student who was killed and was buried in a Wade jersey.

Wade met Saturday with Oliver's family, hosting them at Miami's game against the Detroit Pistons.

"You hurt for the family", Wade told reporters late last month. Ms Sheehy, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas senior, said she would welcome another visit from the secretary, but didn't think it would happen.
