#MohawkStrong: Schools wear red to support to Madison students

MADISON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Classes resumed at Madison Junior and Senior High School Wednesday after a student opened fire in the cafeteria on Monday.

People in the Madison community and neighboring communities have been supporting those affected by the shooting.

Students at Butler Tech showed their support via video. On social media sites like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, #Mohawkstrong are showing pictures of support from school communities, some wearing red.

Schools like Franklin Junior High posted this photo to facebook.l

Michael Beauchat is Supervisor of school and public relations for Butler Tech where some Madison students attend.

"Social media is amazing. It really brings that connection out to all of us and you get to see those reaction and that instant feedback from students saying, it means so much for me to see you wearing red today," said Michael Beauchat. "We know that they are going through a stressful time, especially the students who are returning to Madison today and I think anything that we can do to provide that support system to them is important."

Social media isn't the only places where support was being shown. Local business near the school also showed support on billboards.

"We though, it's important for people coming on and off campus today to see that we are Mohawk strong just as much all the other members of the community and we're proud to be a part of that Madison system."
