Last week, Red Bud High School along with other schools around the world participated in Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is a week to teach teens about the harm drugs can cause to not only their bodies, but their life as well. A recent survey states that 42.5 % of 13 to 18-year-olds have done illegal drugs at least once. So Red Ribbon Week was created to educate teens and to make that growing number decrease. National Federation of Parents for Drug-Free Youth, was established as a nonprofit organization in 1980 by a handful of concerned and determined parents who were convinced they should begin to play a leadership role in drug prevention. Their mission is to lead and support the nation’s families and communities in nurturing the full potential of healthy, drug-free youth. Red Bud is proud of their students and wants them to have long healthy lives, preventing drugs is a way to make sure that happens. Being drug-free is something that should happen every day not just on Red Ribbon Week.
