Red Ribbon Week Parade Held


Pre-K students enjoy parade. Pre-K students enjoy parade. The Miller County Schools, along with Head Start, celebrated Red Ribbon Week with a parade on Friday morning, October 27. Participants included the Miller County Pirate Marching Band, the Pirate football team, MCHS cheerleaders, Homecoming Queen Kimberly Perkins, Miller County Sheriff Scott Worsley, Chief of Police Hollis Smith, Tax Commissioner Jennifer Jackson, the Pirate mascot, the local fire department, a Georgia State Trooper, Elmo, Alvin (from the Chipmunks), Mickey Mouse, pre-k students, and Head Start students who chanted, “Say no to drugs,” as they rode in the parade. Smokey the Bear also waved to the students as they circled the school and then made their way to the square.

Deputy Melanie Williams, organizer of the event, would like to thank all who participated and helped make The Red Ribbon Week Parade a huge success. The parade is a big part of letting the students know that local emergency crews, businesses and the community stand with them in the fight against drugs and bullying. Red Ribbon Week was celebrated this year from October 23-31, 2017.
