Northeast High School launches "Always in Uniform " campaign

These Lincoln Northeast High School students are trying to make a positive impact in a new campaign.

It's called  “Always in Uniform.”

More than 60 teens who pledged to be alcohol and drug free are featured in the posters.

They show students in athletics, ROTC and the arts in their uniform to encourage their peers to do the same.

"We want to show you that there are groups out there that don't do that. We're trying to participate in school like it's supposed to be done,” LNE Student Brian Bentzinger said.

The banners will be put up through the school in various places.

Some of the students took time during lunch set up stands Wednesday.

The project comes from a partnership with the Northeast Area Council for Teen Safety.

It was funded by the Lancaster Prevention Coalition.

Coordinators hope these photos will remind students of their commitment.

"There comes a point in time where every student is faced with challenges and obstacles and temptations. I think this could be a good reminder for them,” LNE Teacher Steve Bartek said.

The students want to send an overall message to their classmates that they're one and their actions affect everyone's image.

They believe this campaign and seeing themselves daily will help them keep their promise of a healthier lifestyle.

"There comes a point in time where every student is face with challenges and obstacles and temptations. I think this could be a good reminder for them,” LNE Student Annika Kuchar said.

The Rockets plan to spread the message beyond the walls of Northeast to the community like to middle school students.
