CHS Red Ribbon Week

The Catalina High School Foundation supported the CHS Red Ribbon Week through a mini-grant.

As part of Red Ribbon Week — the alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed in October — Catalina Magnet High School counselor Marie Welding put together a panel to help students to think about consequences.

“I want to draw students’ attention to drug abuse prevention and safety,” said Welding, who invited speakers from agencies that students would encounter if they were caught with illegal substances. “I want all the kids to hear that if they choose drugs this is what’s gonna happen and it won’t be a pleasant journey.”

The panel consisted of officers from Tucson Police Department, probation officers from Pima County Juvenile Court, a substance abuse counselor, a prosecutor, a victim services specialist from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers and a 24-year-old recovering addict.
