MOULTRIE — Officers and members of SkillsUSA and HOSA pose in front of a bulletin board they did at C.A. Gray Junior High School. On Oct. 22-26, the two student organizations teamed up to promote National Red Ribbon Week and raise drug-free awareness. The students delivered pledge cards in the shape of a key that said ‘Drug Free is the Key’ to classrooms where students were given the opportunity to sign pledging to be drug free. The groups’ theme was ‘KNOCK OUT CRIME - DRUG FREE is the KEY!’ Students developed a bulletin board that had two fists in the center of the board and on the knuckles of the fist were the words ‘DRUG FREE.’ The signed pledge cards were placed around the board and at the last count more than 600 students had pledged to be drug free!
