Steps to HOPE taps into latest internet trend for new bulletin board campaign

Published 8:00 am Thursday, September 13, 2018

Keeping with a hot internet trend and to connect with students using pop culture, Steps to HOPE recently installed bulletin boards at Polk County High School, Polk County Middle School and Landrum Middle School that reworded the song “In My Feelings,” by Drake, to send a message to be friendly, respectful, nice and kind.

The boards feature a photo of Drake in concert to help make the message more interesting to students. Drake is a top-selling rap artist who younger people are very familiar with, representatives said.

Steps to HOPE places bulletin boards in schools each month during the school year as a community outreach project. The boards are meant to encourage students to build healthy relationships and to teach them what healthy relationships are.
