A drone photo of some 200 Red Bank Middle School students arranged in the shape of ribbon on the school’s lawn was a regional winner in last month’s national Red Ribbon contest, school vice principal James Pierson tells redbankgreen.
Taken by volunteer firefighter Joe Holiday, the photo promoted the contest’s anti-drug-abuse theme of “YOLO – You Only Live Once.” For the school, the image brought in $1,000 and an iPad, and getting the kids involved “certainly helped us further our conversations about being drug-free,” Pierson said.
