Special to Atmore News

Pledging to “Go Orange” on Unity Day is a way for leaders, neighbors, parents, and students to visibly show solidarity to take part in the largest, most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world. No student should ever be afraid to go to school, connect with their friends online or feel that their torment is so bad that they consider suicide as a way to end their pain.
On Wednesday, October 23, Escambia County Middle School’s students and staff will come together in one giant ORANGE message of hope and support to visibly show that our school believes that no child should ever experience bullying.
United Bank made a donation to help make Unity Day a success. The check was presented by Emilee Waters, UB Assistant Vice President, Atmore Branch Manager, to ECMS Peer Helpers. ECMS counselor Cordia Lee is the Peer Helpers sponsor.
