CWC Unit 5 Preparing for Red Ribbon Week

Carmi-White County Schools participates annually to take a stand against drugs! Red Ribbon Week started when DEA agent, Kiki Camarena, was kidnapped and tortured to death in Mexico. The DEA sent Camarena to work undercover in Mexico to investigate a major drug cartel. In 1985, Camarena was found in a shallow grave having been tortured to death by members of the cartel. In response, people around the country wore red ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the negative effects caused by drugs in America. Several coalitions were formed in Camarena’s honor and embraced his belief that one person can make a difference. Red Ribbon Week commemorates the sacrifice that Camarena made in an effort to create a drug free world.

Below are the daily activities for RRW for each building. Please join us in making a difference

in our community and taking a stand against drugs and bullying by participating in the daily

activities!
