Red Ribbon Week began in 1985 after US Drug Enforcement Agency Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camareno was kidnapped and killed during an investigation in Mexico.
Students wear red ribbons and participate in activities like the Door Decorating Contest that promote healthy and safe choices. At Vista and Horizon Middle Schools this year, over 600 students signed a pledge to remain drug and alcohol free. Assemblies featured guest speaker, Michael Corsini from Think First and juggler Jason Quick. Both speakers spoke from personal experience about the consequences of making bad choices.
