    TPSS Students Pledge to End Gun Violence

    In partnership with Sheriff Edwards' “Pledge Against Gun Violence," the students of Tangipahoa Parish raised awareness by signing a pledge and making a banner. The Student Pledge empowers young people to take an active stand against gun violence, while also raising awareness about things they can do to remain safe. By taking part in a national campaign that culminates with the signing of a common pledge on a common day, students can envision the power of one, multiplied.
