Otis Brock Elementary students take Red Ribbon Week pledge

Otis Brock Elementary students take Red Ribbon Week pledge”

Churchill Coalition's Student's Taking On Prevention (STOP) high school members are dispersing red ribbons for their Red Ribbon Week Campaign through October 31st.

It's all a part of Red Ribbon Week, a national time of awareness in schools on drug abuse, but for some students, drug awareness is their everyday walk of life.

"I think it is a great opportunity to open up that conversation that parents can have with their child about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, but also about making health choices, taking care of our bodies, and just being well", said Sheila Lythgoe, a prevention specialist for Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare.

Not many towns can say they have two parades down their main street in a single week.

These activities are made possible by the NMI Red Ribbon Campaign Committee, which is comprised of our government agencies, nonprofit and civic organizations, private sector, military counterparts, and our media partners. The Triton football team is the defending state champion and is 8-0 this season after defeating San Juan Hills last week, 31-13.
