National ‘Be the Light’ Campaign

Local schools support Class of 2020, nurses, doctors, and first responders

 

by PIAA District IV, Ed Weaver - April 17, 2020

On Friday, April 17, Northern Tioga, Southern Tioga, and Wellsboro School Districts will begin honoring the Class of 2020 and supporting the nurses, doctors, and first responders on the front line of COVID-19 by lighting up their high school stadiums at 8:20 p.m. (20:20) for 20 minutes as part of the national “Be the Light” Campaign.

On Friday at 8:20 p.m., the scoreboards will display the score as 20-20 in honor of this year’s graduating class, while 4th Down and 19 Yards to Go will be displayed as the down and distance signifying COVID-19 is on its final down.

Please note that supporting residents are NOT permitted on stadium grounds during this time and should remain at home. If you are compelled to support this initiative from your home, get your favorite noisemaker (cowbells, horns, etc.) or rally towel, poms, etc. and take a selfie picture or video, post it to your social media site and tag your local schools on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

You may also tag the Home Page Network family of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts and use the hashtag #PIAATogether.

Each school will be publishing pictures and information on their respective social media outlets.

We cannot stress this enough, supporters of this initiative should NOT travel onto school district property. Thank you!
