One week out of the school year it dedicated to encouraging others to not do drugs. Each day of the week is different themes, for example. Monday was “meme day,” “meme are funny, drugs are not.” Tuesday was twin day which represents helping each other not do drugs. Wednesday was House color day which represents teaming up against drugs. Thursday was “Throw Back Thursday” which represents leaving drugs in the past. Friday was spirit day, where students, faculty and staff dressed in red and white to show off their school spirit. The true meaning of Red Ribbon week is helping each other keep us on the right track and not go down a wrong path.

“Red Ribbon week is tied to being drug free, and making good decisions” Principal Charles Presley said.

The Student Council tries to make Red Ribbon week to where the students can express their feelings and emotions. Dressing up for each day lets the students have fun while keeping themselves drug free.

“Everyone put in their own ideas and then we voted and make slogans.” senior and Student Body President Jayden Mankins

Each day is differently themed to get students involved and excited. Red Ribbon Week is used as a reminder to students to remain drug free.

“It’s just a reminder of the choices we are all faced with. We will be less interested in doing drugs.” Presley said.

Being drug free is important to the students and staff of Kilgore High School. This week is used to encourage students to be drug free and not make bad decisions when it comes to drugs.

“My favorite thing about Red Ribbon Week is the funny costumes and outfits people wear,” sophomore Donovan Adkins said.

What makes Red Ribbon week so fun is getting to dress up, or see what other people wear to school. Dressing up gets the students into the spirit of Red Ribbon week.

“My favorite day was ‘Meme day’ because everyone relates to them.” Donovan said.
