LHS Student Council launches M.A.D. campaign, promotes Tornado Tip Line
The Making A Difference (MAD) campaign was created by the Laurel High School Student Council to promote awareness of issues that affect the school, district and city. Through M.A.D., students will offer support to the student body by promoting respect for self and school. M.A.D. will function as a peer support group for the campus by being a listening ear and an advocating voice for Tornado Nation.
Through the Making a Difference campaign, the Laurel High School Student Council will host guest speakers, workshops, and other promotions to encourage the student body to take a stand against bullying, destructive decisions, drugs and more. Through the promotions, M.A.D. will encourage kindness, generosity and self-worth.
One of the staple promotions of M.A.D. will be encouraging students to utilize the Laurel School District’s TipLine reporting system found in the district’s app. To help make a difference in our school community, all students and parents have to do is download the Laurel School District app for free from any cellphone app store and click on TipLine. There will be spaces to report details on a variety of issues and once submitted will be received by a school resource officer.
To kickoff the M.A.D. campaign, the Student Council hosted assemblies at Laurel High School and Laurel Middle School where motivational speaker Dr. Layman Hicks shared a positive message about motivation, kindness and positive decision making.
“In Student Council, my ultimate goal is to encourage students to leave a legacy,” said Sponsor Tamia Taylor. “I tell my students that even if something doesn’t benefit you while you are here, leave something behind for the benefit of the next generation.”
