For the seventh straight year, Rockcastle County Middle School has been a UNITE Club of the Year. During the 2014-15 school year, the school had 133 student members of their UNITE Club.
Club members continued many on-going drug awareness and prevention programs, and sponsored a strong drug prevention speaker/singer for a school-wide assembly.
Once again, members participated in the annual “Wipe Out Drugs” toilet paper drive during the UNITE Bowl football game, which benefits several treatment facilities.
In addition, they continued community projects such as “Pennies for Patients” at the local hospital, conducted a food drive for the local mission, and raised funds for the food pantry through the “Hunger Walk.”
Awareness activities included creating public service announcements for “Pinwheels for Prevention” and organizing a variety of Red Ribbon Week activities.
The club was awarded their trophy at the March 8, 2016 Rockcastle County Board of Education meeting.
