Some local Pender County students are taking a stand against a new school policy in a controversial way. Topsail High School student Brittany McCreight's T-shirt says it all. She's upset about some new school policies -- like the removal of off-campus lunch, and only allowing students to carry certain types of backpacks. So to show her disapproval McCreight made 20 T-shirts for her fellow classmates with the word "inmate" on the front and "Topsail High prison" on the back. McCreight said, "We think it's an invasion of privacy… My senior year should be the best year of my life, but I've never been more stressed or angry in any school year." The Pender County School Board did release a statement which says it is in the students' best interest to reduce the likelihood of potential harmful objects in the classroom.
