Chatham Christian student Leann Morgan got the attention of Chatham-Kent police, but in a good way.

Morgan, a Grade 5 student, won the 2013-14 VIP T-shirt design contest.

Students from 39 schools across Chatham-Kent participate in the Values, Influences and Peers (VIP) program. The Optimist Club of Chatham sponsors 10 schools in Chatham to take part in the program.

According to police, the VIP program has been effective in establishing positive community-police relationships over the years.  Lessons taught to students such as shoplifting awareness, victims and vandals, the dangers of drugs and bullying and the law, are preventive in nature and allow students to evaluate the consequences of negative behaviour before they are caught up in it.
