Maria Hart, 12, spoke during today’s Red Ribbon Week assembly

Stephanie Atchley


“Red Ribbon Week is very important to me, not just because it’s a thing that should be known about all over, but it’s very personal. It really hits home that drugs not only affect the person that is doing them but their family and their friends. Drugs are a very serious thing, and I think there should be more awareness in high school and junior high. I think they should be more awareness because kids who aren’t around it know better, kids that don’t know about it choose to be more adventurous and choose to do it, not knowing what it can do. If anybody needs someone to talk to or to vent to, I’m always here for you.”
