What is Red Ribbon Week?
Red Ribbon Week is celebrated across America each year. It began in 1988 in honor of Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who lost his life in the fight against drugs. The goals of Red Ribbon Week are to create awareness concerning the problems related to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs, and to support the decision to live a healthy, drug free lifestyle. Our campus has some special dress up days planned to celebrate Red Ribbon Week, which will be observed October 23-27. We will also have a speaker from Just Say Yes visit our campus during Red Ribbon Week to present a program to our students on the importance of staying drug free and making positive choices.
