Abernathy Backs the Blue Campaign

Abernathy ISD has partnered with Roosevelt ISD to host a Back-the-Blue event on October 22nd. Sergeant Josh Bartlett, former assistant SWAT commander for the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office, was shot and killed in the line of duty this summer. His family are members of the Roosevelt ISD community. AHS student council is working with Roosevelt's student council to host a Back-the-Blue event - an event to honor Sgt. Bartlett and all members of the law enforcement community. The event will showcase our mutual support for law enforcement officers. Abernathy ISD is raising money which will be donated to the South Plains College scholarship which was established in Sgt. Bartlett's name and which assists students in the law enforcement program. On the night of the Roosevelt football game, we will have a "Blue Out" and Abernathy and Roosevelt spectators will be encouraged to wear blue attire to show support for LEOs. We will be selling t-shirts with an Abernathy Backs the Blue design for this game. So how can you get involved? Feel free to drop off a monetary donation at the Abernathy High School office or order an “Abernathy Back the Blue” shirt and wear it to the football game. Order forms can be picked up at any campus and must be returned by noon on Monday, October 11th. You can be assured that every dollar raised will directly benefit students in the law enforcement program at South Plains College. Let’s show our area that Abernathy Backs the Blue!
