On Tuesdays during the month, staff and students are being encouraged to wear blue - staff and faculty that participate can also wear blue jeans that day.

January is Human Trafficking Awareness month, and the NHS Student Council wanted to bring awareness to the problem. It’s also a project of the Texas Association of Student Councils, and high schools across the state are participating.
Estimates in Texas indicate there are roughly 234,000 victims of labor trafficking and approximately 313,000 victims of human trafficking in the state. 

Red flags of trafficking can include a person that’s not free to come and go on his or her own and a person that’s not allowed breaks or suffers unusual restrictions at work.

The Rev. Lorraine Brown, associate pastor at First United Methodist Church in Nacogdoches, will visit with NHS Student Council about human trafficking at 10:50 a.m. Jan. 29.
