Dwyane Wade surprises Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with visit

During a press conference after her visit, DeVos said she did not discuss any one specific school safety solution with students or teachers during her time at Douglas High, but said she is committed to acting to find a solution to keep schools safer.

"I'm thankful they came to the game", Wade told the Sun Sentinel newspaper.

Students and school staff flooded social media with photos and videos from Wade's visit.

DeVos visited Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland 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".

"We were kind of following her around and asking her questions, but she kind of just circumvented the actual point that we were trying to ask here", she told The Independent.

"Our conversation about bridging the gap between the students from Parkland, Florida and Chicago was really impressive", Wade wrote in a second tweet. But the secretary clashed with a number of the student survivors, who have mobilised in support of stricter gun control measures since the shooting. "But we need to help elevate those opportunities and make sure people know there are solutions that can be engaged immediately". "Joaquin Oliver may you Rest In Peace and i dedicate my return and the rest of this Miami Heat season to you", Wade tweeted after the game. The guard said he plans on being involved. That idea faces opposition from teachers unions, many school superintendents and even members of the president's party. Oliver, who was one of the 17 victims from the February 14 tragedy, was buried while wearing a Wade No. 3 Heat jersey. Oliver's family were special guests of Wade's at Saturday's game at AmericanAirlines Arena, and Wade has played with Oliver's name on his sneakers ever since he found out about Oliver.

As legislators debated in Tallahassee, U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited Stoneman Douglas on the first full day of classes since the shooting.
