Students at Camden High Rally Against Drugs
Red Ribbon WeekCamden County High School participated in the Red Ribbon Week campaign against alcohol, tobacco, and drug use among students by holding a number of festivities this past week. As students drove into the school’s parking lot they were greeted by a large Sign Gypsies pop-up surrounded by balloons and stars that read “Red Ribbon Week” in bright red and gold. Anti-drug and alcohol posters made by various clubs and sports teams lined the hallways of the school as a visual representation for the students of the benefits of living a drug-free lifestyle. Students were covered head-to-toe in red on Wednesday for “Wear-Red Day” that the school celebrates during this annual week-long campaign.  The high school’s SADD (Students Against Destruction Decisions) club and other members of the student body were involved in the promotion of Red Ribbon Week by handing out red ribbons to their classmates and encouraging students to pledge to be drug-free. “I’m very pleased with the overwhelming support from faculty and students during our Red Ribbon Week campaign,” said Tara Carter, a guidance counselor at the high school, “Making students aware of the dangers of drug and alcohol use is very important to the school community.” Last school year, Camden County High School was recognized by Governor Nathan Deal and the Georgia Red Ribbon Campaign for their exceptional effort in educating students about the dangers of drug and alcohol usage. As a symbol of the drug-free pledge, students signed a large red ribbon.
