Bainbridge High students weren't seeing red Wednesday.

Color them orange instead.

Students through the school wore anything orange — shirts, hats, pants and more — as part of Unity Day.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and on Unity Day, Oct. 10, students and others across the country are wearing orange to show they are united against bullying.

At Bainbridge High, teachers and other staff also joined the students in orange garb for Unity Day.

Faith Campbell, a senior at BHS, said she was impressed to see the large number of students who were wearing orange for Unity Day.

"There's been a lot of support. It's really nice," she said.

Campbell donned a bright orange top and an even brighter safety vest for the day.

"I think that bullying is a very underrated issue. And a lot of kids are affected by it and I think we need to bring attention to it and end it," Campbell said.
