Central Elementary celebrated "Red Ribbon Week" this week. Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated, helping to preserve Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena’s memory (a DEA agent killed in the line of duty) and further the cause for which he gave his life. The Red Ribbon Campaign also became a symbol of support for the DEA’s efforts to reduce demand for drugs through prevention and education programs.
Red Ribbon Celebration brings millions of people together to raise awareness of the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, and encourage prevention, early intervention, and treatment services. It is the largest, most visible prevention awareness campaign observed annually in the United States.
