Holmes said someone gave him the red wig, so he wore it to school. Students and faculty were asked to dress in red on Thursday in support of Red Ribbon Week, which raises awareness for the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The theme of Red Ribbon week is “Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free.” (Photo by LEAH DAVIS, Gazebo Staff)
