Red Ribbon Week

Theme: Your Future is Key, So Stay Drug Free

To promote healthy lifestyle choices and to increase awareness about negative effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Glenwood will be participating in Red Ribbon Week. The Red Ribbon Celebration originated following the murder of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique Camerena, by drug traffickers in February 1985. The Red Ribbon became the symbol to eliminate the demand for drugs and to stop the killing, violence, and destruction caused by alcohol and other drugs. The annual celebration began in 1988 in Ohio and has grown and impacted millions of Americans.
