#TimesUp movement at Holt High School

By  | 

HOLT, Mich. (WILX) - It's a mantra we've been hearing more and more lately as one sex-assault scandal after another is exposed "Time's up."

It's been everywhere from the Oscars to Michigan State University and now down to a local high school.
Holt students are trying to capture this moment in time.

The Holt High School yearbook and newspaper programs organized a group photo Tuesday to honor the community's efforts in sexual assault programs and support survivors.

Students and staff dressed in teal, the color of sexual assault awareness to take a photo. Their newspaper and the yearbook will feature the "Time's up" movement and how the Holt community comes together.
Students told us they started this in response to Larry Nassar's survivors and because the tragedy was so close to home for them. Students tell me they wanted a way to stand in solidarity with those survivors.

Holt High School yearbook student editor, Emma Mckeon said, "we are here and we're supporting, and we're ready to stop the sexual assault."

Evan Johnson, another Holt High School student added "We want them to know that everyone in the community is here for them and that we are all one big family. If one thing happens to one of us, then it happens to all of us."

Students are selling "Times-up" Holt T-shirts. They are going fast, but the staff plans to order more soon.

All proceeds from the shirts are will go to organizations in the area that support survivors of sexual assault.
