The idea of Daylight Saving Time, according to most online reference sources, was first brought up by George Vernon Hudson in 1895 but wasn’t officially put into place until the first world war. Scientists say the switch helps us keep up with a standard time scale and not a solar one.
But students at Sturgeon Bay High School have a different perspective on what Daylight Saving Time means to them.
Senior Maddie Hauser says she has mixed feelings about the time change.
Hauser says sleep is more important to her now that she's a senior.
Many other students we talked to said that daylight savings is a sign that summer is fast approaching and that makes them very happy.
