Students help Paint the Town Red in Pittsburg


A new school year and football season mean it's time for Pittsburg to Paint the Town Red.

And on Wednesday area elementary students showed off their Pitt State spirit by decorating their schools.

Gus the Gorilla and Pittsburg Mayor Michael Gray stopped by the elementary schools to visit with students and check out their hard work.

Schools and businesses take part in the annual event every year to showcase community support for the college.

"We had to make our bodies and then put them on a window, then we made posters and we colored in gorillas," says fifth grade student Ela Hendreckson.

"It's just for all the kids in the school and especially for the kindergardners, it's their first year," says fourth grader Cade McConnell.

More Paint the Town Red events will take place throughout the week.  They all lead up to Saturday's home opener at Carnie Smith Stadium.
