This week is also Red Ribbon Week. It was was started in honor of Enrique Camarena, a drug enforcement agent in Mexico, who was killed in the line of duty in 1985. He grew up in a dirt-floored house with hopes and dreams of making a difference. Enrique worked his way through college, served in the Marines and then became a police officer. In honor of Camarena’s memory and work, parents, friends, and neighbors began wearing satin red ribbons and forming coalitions against drug use. Red Ribbon campaigns were organized by the National Family Partnership in 1988, as an effort to protect children from the dangers of drugs. Guilford County Schools and many communities across the nation use this important week to continue promoting and celebrating healthy and drug-free lifestyles through a variety of activities within the schools.
