West Scranton High School Commemorates Red Ribbon Week

On Monday, October 24, students from West Scranton High School’s SADD club kicked off the celebration of Red Ribbon Week by decorating the front of the school.  Red ribbons were used as a message to the student body to avoid the harmful effects caused by making destructive decisions.

Red Ribbon week is celebrated yearly to commemorate a drug enforcement officer, Enrique “Kiki” Camerena, who was killed in Mexico in the war against illegal drugs.

Participants in Red Ribbon Week were: Back row (left to right):
