Antigo High School wears blue, supports law enforcement


A sea of blue flooded Antigo High School Friday, as staff and students shared their support for local law enforcement.

This comes nearly a week after a shooting at the school prom where law enforcement's quick response is credited for saving lives.

"We take a lot of pride in the fact that the police officers had such an amazing way that they took about the situation," said Antigo High School Senior Nadia Voytovich. "We're just really grateful for all of that."

The idea came after DC Everest High School started a statewide campaign to wear maroon and white next Wednesday to show their support for Antigo.

Then, 'Dress in Blue Day' spread across social media and into the school.

"Great to see no matter what school you go to when it comes right down to it we all care about each other," said Antigo High School Principal Tom Zamzow.

While the students and staff show their gratitude, the support for a school in a trying time has spread so much further than just Antigo.

"Last night Northern Pines softball made these posters, gave the girls flowers," said Zamzow.

While the support continues to grow, the principal said the recovery may take a while.

"Each day gets better," said Zamzow.
