During a time when drug use is on the rise a local high school is making sure to educate its students of the dangers. Southside High School is holding a Drug Free Week for students.
Law Enforcement spoke with students about the harm different drugs can do. Sophomore Micah Prickett says this is information he won’t soon forget.
Health Teacher Brett Yancey says it is important that students feel like they can open up and talk to someone if they need it.
Every day this week will focus on different aspects about being drug free. Wednesday students will celebrate Red Ribbon Week by wearing red, Thursday students will participate in “tying up drugs” by wearing tie-dye shirts and Friday students will wear pink to show that hers are against drugs.
