Many students and teachers at Boyle County High School wore orange and blue in memory of the victims of the Marshall County High School shooting on Jan. 23, and in honor of the staff and students there.

In a news release from the Kentucky Dept. of Education, Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt asked Kentuckians statewide to wear the school’s colors of blue and orange on Friday, Feb. 2.

They were also asked to take pictures showing their support for for the school and “post them on social media with the hashtag #MarshallStrong so that the residents of Marshall County will know individuals across the state stand behind them.”
