‼️Lets make this go viral. We are our village.‼️
Dear Tory Lowe,
My name is Anquinette and my daughter was raped by a white male student at Wausau East high School and they covered it up. In mid-February 2019, my daughter went to a friend’s house and then they went to Blue Gale Park. The friend she was with got picked up from the park and my daughter decided to walk home. While at the park she ran into Evan Van Norman one of the students that bullyied her school.
He told her he will give her a ride home. My daughter turned down the offer and attempted to head home. That is when she says Evan physically attacked her forced her to the ground and raped her. He told her no one would believe her if she told on him, and used vulgar racial slurs, threatening comments that scared and tramatised my baby. He also said that his mother knows people and nothing will happen to him. My violated daughter returned home and didn’t tell anyone. In fear no one would believe her.
My daughter decided to tell Shannon Young the Principal at EEA High School in hopes of getting some type of support. Instead she was told to keep the report she had made about the assault a secret. The principle did not let me know anything and tried to cover it up. My daughter was bullied the whole time she been at the school and tried to commit suicide shortly after the rape.
I found out after I chose to look through my daughter phone and found Instagram messages from Even Van Norman apologizing to my daughter for raping her. He wanted to talk to her as if nothing happened. My daughter told him she could not sleep, eat, and she was having nightmares as she relives what happened at the park everyday. I ask my daughter about the message, and she just broke down to her knees and told me that a boy at her school name Evan had raped her. I immediately called the principal Shannon young.
I made a report a officer took my daughter statement, and the next day Principal Young told me that it would not be a good idea to send my daughter to school until they handle the situation. They had me remove my daughter from the school from March 18th till this year of September 9th. My daughter found her self in a suicidal state of mind after all the bullying and rape was to much for a 15 year old to handle. The school has yet to give me any documentation of the the bullying my daughter reported prior to being raped.
Principal Shannon Young didn’t think my daughter was mentally capable of coming to school, but the young man that bullied and raped my daughter has been in school everyday. I am hurt and shocked that this young man is not in jail. This happened back in February. I met with the school board to make a long story short they agreed with Shannon Young’s decision of removing my daughter from school. They said they personally felt the principal was right to remove my child. This system has failed my child. I want justice for my daughter. Please make this go viral so the world will know what’s going in here in Wausau.

👑: This is very disturbing that this rapist is being protected by this School and is not in jail. I am shocked to see the emails of him apologizing for the assault and he remains a student at this school. The young woman was also raped before. The principle should be ashamed of herself for telling a rape victim to keep it a secret when it’s her responsibility to protect this student. I’m asking the Wausau community to help get this rapist off the streets. Please contact the school and police and demand that student to be put in jail. Contact school board Principal needs to be fired.
