Red Ribbon Week 2019 started last Wednesday. Red Ribbon Week is a national substance misuse prevention campaign that uses a red ribbon as a reminder of the dangers of substances and the importance of making good choices. The tradition began in 1985 following the brutal murder of Enrique Camarena, a drug enforcement agent.
Each year, the KYC uses Red Ribbon Week as another opportunity to help teens stay drug free. The KYC’s tradition is to create a red ribbon visual that reflects the annual campaign slogan and our students’ reasons for choosing to be drug free. This year’s slogan is: “Send a Message. Stay Drug Free.”
