Did you know that the idea for pink shirt day came from two incredible Nova Scotia high school students in 2007? When a fellow student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, they decided to take a stand. They went out and bought pink shirts to give to fellow students to show their support for a boy who was being bullied simply for wearing a pink shirt.  We challenge all Colquitz staff and students to wear pink tomorrow to show that you dont stand for bullying.
