Students have participated in activities throughout East Texas! Lufkin ISD, Huntington ISD, Diboll ISD, and Central ISD Drug-Free All Stars participated in Red Ribbon Rallies with the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Council of Deep East Texas. Hudson ISD Drug-Free All Stars presented to Bonner Elementary students about the importance of choosing a healthy life. Zavalla ISD Drug-Free Council and Pineywoods Community Academy Drug-Free All Stars planned their own Red Ribbon Pep Rallies for their schools! St. Cyprian’s Episcopal School Drug-Free All Stars and other student organization members created a Red Ribbon Week fence display in front of the school. Wells ISD Drug-Free Council read to 2nd graders and shared drug prevention information at their fall festival. Last but not least, Lufkin High School students participated in a pledge chain competition to see which grade could create the longest paper chain with Red Ribbon Week pledges. Class of 2024 won!
We are proud of all the hard work the Drug-Free All Stars and Drug-Free Council members put into their activities to make them such a success! This is also a reminder to parents to continue the conversations regarding alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs after Red Ribbon Week is complete! The Drug-Free All Star program aims to reduce underage drinking, and in partnership with TxDOT, reduce crashes, injuries and death on Texas roadways. #EndtheStreakTX
