Students from West Scranton High School’s SADD club marked the celebration of Red Ribbon Week by decorating the front of the school. Red ribbons are used as a message to the student body to avoid the harmful effects caused by making destructive decisions. Red Ribbon week is celebrated yearly to commemorate a drug enforcement officer, Enrique “Kiki” Camerena, who was killed in Mexico in the war against illegal drugs.
