CCHS junior Emilee Cheesman set up the activities, which will begin Monday, to recognize domestic violence prevention.
October is National Domestic Violence Month.
Cheesman told The Brazil Times her mother is a domestic violence advocate, which peaked her interest in the subject.
"It really got me interested in how things happen and who gets involved when things happen and how serious it is," she said.
Clay City Principal Jeff Bell said he was impressed with the amount of work Cheesman put into her efforts.
"She's done a great job," Bell said. "She's got everything down to a 'T.' She did all the work herself.
"It reminds the kids that there are thing out there that are bigger than themselves and reminds them of what we can do to help others."
Bell added Cheesman's sister, Marleah Tryon -- a 2010 Clay City graduate -- also helped organize events for the school to recognize domestic violence prevention in the past.
"(Emilee's) interested in working to help in that field when she gets out of high school," Bell said. "She's actually been involved in some classes and learning situations of her own. It's something that she has great awareness of. It's important to her."
Cheesman set up different themed days for next week, including a purple sock day. Not only is purple the school's color, it also represents National Domestic Violence Month.
In addition, she has scheduled a pantry drive, a raffle and surveys for students.
The school will also conduct convocations Friday, Oct. 8, at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., with plays performed by students of the theater class, written by Cheesman.
Representatives from the Council on Domestic Abuse will also be on hand as well as other speakers, including dispatchers, law enforcement, probation officers, prison officials, government officials, firefighters and more.
"I had to sit down and come up with plans for each day and contact people to speak," Cheesman said. "It gets stressful, but in the end, it pays off."
According to a press release, Cheesman took it upon herself to set up the activities after interning at a Domestic Violence Program during the summer.
She wrote a plan and presented it to school officials for approval.
"I learned it can get stressful at times, but if you feel good about it, that's the good thing," Cheesman said.
"You want to do something that makes you feel good and feel like you accomplished something."
Bell said the school has had presentations in the past for National Domestic Violence Month.
"We've had some things," he said. "We did some things last year, a few little things. But not to this degree."
Cheesman said ultimately, she hopes the students find the week eventful.
"I hope they learn how serious domestic violence is and that it is not a joke," she said. "I hope they take some information and it opens their eyes and they realize what it is."
