“Initially, I was curious to see how quickly the “Dare Not to Swear” initiative would take off with the students at Bremerton High School — and it did!

The social stigma that cussing is the cool thing to do, is no longer true within the walls of Bremerton High School, and a welcome change. These students are respectful and they want to be respected — and they are making positive changes and setting an example for everyone they encounter.
