Love Hub Event Unites Hollywood Hills High School Students on Feb. 14

Observing the one year anniversary of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Hollywood Hills High School held a Love Hub event.

During the morning, students, faculty and administrators observed a moment silence and students were encouraged to share their feelings. They were encouraged to express themselves through art therapy and to give each other hugs. The idea was to promote love and compassion among everyone at Hollywood Hills High School.

“We are celebrating love and peace as we honor those who died and were injured at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School,” said Erin Brown, an assistant principal at Hollywood Hills High School. “We want to give students an outlet to express themselves.”

During the day, many of the school’s service clubs came together to offer support to students. There was a strong emphasis on showing love to fellow students. Paper butterflies with the word “Hug Me” were distributed.
