The Origin of Red Ribbon Week

The wearing of the red ribbon was established in honor of Special DEA Agent Enrique (KIKI)
Camerena. Officer Camarena lost his life fighting drug traffickers in California in 1985.  During Red Ribbon Week, the Red Ribbon is worn in honor of the sacrifices made by Officer Camerena and other Americans.  It is worn to celebrate drug free lifestyles and to support “no use of illegal drugs and no illegal use of legal drugs”.  The majority of teens and adults DO NOT abuse drugs, and choose to live healthy lifestyles and that’s something to celebrate! Stop by the RED RIBBON INFORMATION TABLE today during your lunch period and get your red ribbon!
