This year, Katie Covington’s advanced art students at Batesville Junior High School had a contest to design a mask for students to wear during Red Ribbon Week that promoted this year’s theme: Be Happy, Be Brave, Be Drug-Free.
McKenzie Treat won the contest, and her art was used to design the mask for Red Ribbon Week.
Thanks to First Community Bank’s generous sponsorship, every student will receive the mask for free to wear during Red Ribbon week, Covington said.
First Community Bank has a huge heart for the students in our community and we cannot thank them enough for helping bring the student’s amazing idea for Red Ribbon Week to life for our school this year, noted Covington.
