As part of a county-wide Pink Day, students in the St. Marys, Ridgway and Johnsonburg school districts, as well as employees at the Elk County Courthouse and North Central, dressed in pink clothing and accessories.
The idea behind the event first came about two years ago when Kate McGonnell, a guidance counselor at the St. Marys Area Middle School, coordinated a district-wide pink day. Students were encouraged to wear pink and various events were held at each of the different schools.
