LHMS Hugs Not Drugs T-Shirt Sale
Submitted by: Mrs. Wendy Cook
The LHMS Student Council is honoring Red Ribbon Week by selling "Hugs Not Drugs" T-Shirts.
Red Ribbon Week started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico. After his death, people wanted to honor his sacrifice. Local celebrations began in California – where Camarena grew up – in 1985, and in 1988 the National Family Partnership started the first National Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is an opportunity for parents, educators, and communities to fight the constant battle against drugs by talking with youth and young adults about the real issues around drug use. “Each year, Red Ribbon Week reinvigorates the message that drug abuse remains with us, and that we must stay vigilant in the fight,” says Jack Lawn, DEA Administrator during Officer Camarena's tenure.

Sizes 2X-5X are $15 each or 2 shirts in that size range $20.
