My name is Corey Davis and I am a junior at Bradwell Institute. I am the junior class president. I have lived in Hinesville my entire life, and I aspire to be a famous filmmaker in the future.
I am known to be a great leader at my school because I try my best to listen to everyone’s problems and do the best I can to fix them.
That makes me a student activist because I advocate for student rights and community rights.
I currently run a movement called the #PLURKMovement, which stands for peace, love, unity, respect and kindness.
My main platform in life is to promote positivity and make others feel special inside and out. I use this movement in school and in the community.
My whole life, I’ve dedicated my purpose to help those in need, and spreading positive messages is my goal.
I have received a lot of complaints from my peers at my high school, Bradwell Institute, about not being able to wear Crocs to school.
Liberty County High School has also been affected by this ban.
For the 2017-18 school year, the Board of Education has placed a ban on Crocs in the Liberty County School System Code of Conduct.
I have conducted research on other schools in different counties besides Liberty, and studies show that Crocs are usually banned in most schools because students do not wear socks inside of Crocs.
I have come up with an idea to persuade the Board of Education to allow Crocs to be worn again in public schools only if the students agree to wear socks inside.
Please sign this petition to allow students to wear Crocs in Liberty County schools again and give your honest opinions about Crocs and what you want to happen.
My goal is to share the petition among peers and fellow students in the community. I’m going to try and get the Board to reach a consensus. Please share under the hashtag #SocksInCrocs
