Parents, teachers, and students gathered Saturday to support teachers in Martin County schools.
They lined up along the corners of Roosevelt Bridge in Stuart to get people to vote yes on a millage tax increase that will help improve teacher salaries.
They say they not only hope it helps retain valuable teachers but also help with recruiting other high-quality teachers.
"We have awesome teachers that do a great job for our kids and I just want the teachers to get paid for what they do...they've overperformed," said a father.
"We can't do it without the help of the community. It has to happen and it's time," said Donna Jacobsen, a teacher.
People at the event walked across the Roosevelt Bridge wearing red in support of education.
