RED BANK: SCHOOL PIC WINS $1,000, iPAD

rbms-red-ribbon-week-photoA 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.
