Bring your wildest pair of socks back to campus after Spring Break because Panola College is participating in a “Rock Your Socks” event on Wednesday, March 21. It’s all part of World Down Syndrome Day, and it’s a way to celebrate the differences and abilities of all students.

Panola College has set a one-day goal for students, faculty and staff acting together to perform 321 random acts of kindness and by rocking your most colorful socks on Wednesday, March 21! Post your photos on social media — Instagram, Facebook, SnapChat, Twitter, wherever you want, but be sure to tag your photos with #PanolaRocks321.

All photos with the hashtag will be entered into a drawing to win a gift basket sponsored by the Panola College Store.

You can wear different socks, brightly colored socks, long socks, printed socks, mismatched socks, any kind of fun socks in honor of our friends who rock an extra chromosome. Wearing mismatched socks reminds us to celebrate the things that make us each unique.

World Down Syndrome Day is on March 21, to symbolize a third copy of the 21st chromosome in people with Down syndrome. Communities all over the world will be celebrating the acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome by “Rocking Their Socks” and doing random acts of kindness.
