Here is a comment from a local Greenville student: “My name is Madison and I go to A.G. Cox Middle School. I am in 6th grade. I really really am not excited about wearing uniforms because well, you know I am a girl and I like to dazzle it up! But I think it will also be kinda nice because some people do not follow the dress code and in my opinion it is kind of disturbing! It will also be easier to get ready in the morning because I will only have three colors (that I don’t like very much) to choose from.” And another Pitt County student says “My name is Chandler and I go to A. G. Cox and I am in the 7th grade. Personally, I think the uniforms are good and bad! They are good because it will stop gang activity, and will also make everyone have more time in the mornings because they don’t have to pick out their clothes. In another way, it is bad because it makes us all look the same and boring! I think that we should have uniforms, and every Friday, we should have a special day where we can wear anything that we choose to.”
We will be awarding a brand new Olympus digital camera to the writer of the best story (in our opinion) about why Pitt County is called ‘Pitt’. Creativity is encouraged. The contest deadline will be February 15th. For rules, see above. Get writing!
