NPHS student-athletes launch ‘Fight for the Blue, Stay in the Yellow’ campaign
Students at North Platte High School launched their 'Fight for the Blue, Stay in the Yellow' campaign to help the community stay healthy.
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Local high school students are sending an important message to the community two weeks before school starts in the fall. They launched their ‘Fight for the Blue, Stay in the Yellow’ campaign to help their peers and the community slow the spread of COVID-19.
“I am nervous because I know things are going to happen, school might close down eventually and we will have to go to remote learning,” said North Platte High School Senior Maddie Ochsner. “But I’m more worried about not being able to compete in speech, One-Acts and perform on stage for the fall and spring show and not being able to show what I can do and since it is our senior year and we won’t get another opportunity to do this.”
The student led campaign encourages social distancing, good hand-washing techniques, and wearing face masks.
“As our coaches were talking to us last night when we had our first day of conditioning they said, ‘You should wear your face mask if you want to continue in this program, otherwise, we won’t have a season at all,” said Senior Cameron Sutherland. “I think that kind of goes for everybody, not just athletics. If you want to go to school then you should wear a face mask when appropriate.”
