Kentuckians asked to wear blue & orange for Marshall County


MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- Kentuckians are being asked to break out their blue and orange on Friday in honor of Marshall County High School.

Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt says, by wearing the school’s colors, Kentuckians are showing their support for Marshall County High School, as that community continues to heal in the aftermath of last week’s shooting that left two students dead and 18 others wounded.

“The healing and recovery process will be long, and after the spotlight on this tragedy dims, it is important that the residents of Marshall Co. know they are still on our minds and in our hearts,” Pruitt said in a statement posted on Facebook.

In addition to wearing the school’s colors on Friday, February 2, Pruitt is also asking people to post pictures on social media with the hashtag #MarshallStrong “so that the residents of Marshall County will know individuals across the state stand behind them.”
