Red Ribbon Week Winners At Weaver Elementary School
Weaver Elementary School wins a $500 check for discouraging underage drinking and keeping kids away from tobacco. The check is recognition of the school’s spirit during red ribbon week. The National Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people. The Weaver Elementary students held a pep rally, draped the school hallways in red, and decorated doors. Weaver Elementary expressed the most school spirit for substance abuse prevention. The school took top honors in two categories. Calhoun County’s Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention rewarded the efforts of the young people. The Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention will continue to assist schools set clear rules for our children about not using drugs. Young people have a chance to pledge to live a drug-free life by wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events.
