Red Ribbon Week

Posted: Updated:

Century High School Students covered the Capitol grounds with red ribbons to spread an important message. 

Members of Students Against Destructive Decisions tied red ribbons around the trees on the capitol veranda to focus awareness on drugs and the dangers of using them. This is just one way the high school club is partaking in the nationwide Red Ribbon Week.

Members say it is important to educate the whole community about drug and alcohol related preventable deaths. 

"Well smoking is the leading cause of preventable death alongside with alcohol, alcohol also equates for a large amount of preventable deaths," says SADD Member, Reshab Kumar. 

"There's an illusion in all communities that not my child. My child doesn't do drugs my child doesn't drink but the harsh reality is that many kids do, so I think it's important that we try to educate not just our students at school but parents in the community even if you're not a parent, but a community member, it's important that the community hears our message that Century SADD is trying to promote," says CHS SADD Advisor, Laurie Foerderer. 

There are more than 75 members in SADD at CHS.
