Red Ribbon Week at EMS

EPPING — Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of Americans during the last week of October every year. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events, young people pledge to live a drug-free life. Students at EMS will be taking part in several activities throughout the week to celebrate making positive choices, living drug free, and to pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enriqué “Kiki” Camarena.

Special Agent Camarena was an 11‐year veteran of the DEA assigned to the Guadalajara, Mexico, office where he was on the trail of the country’s biggest marijuana and cocaine traffickers. In 1985, he was extremely close to uncovering a multi‐billion dollar drug pipeline. On February 7, 1985, he was kidnapped and murdered by Mexican drug traffickers. His tragic death opened the eyes of many Americans to the dangers of drugs and the scope of the international drug trade.

Shortly after Kiki’s death, Congressman Duncan Hunter and Kiki’s high school friend Henry Lozano launched “Camarena Clubs” in Kiki’s hometown of Calexico, California.

Hundreds of club members pledged to lead drug‐free lives to honor the sacrifice made by

Kiki Camarena. These pledges were delivered to First Lady Nancy Reagan at a national conference of parents combating youth drug use. Several state parent organizations then called on community groups to wear red ribbons during the last week of October as a symbol of their drug‐free commitment.

All three schools in the Epping School District will be joining together to create a red ribbon on our field this year on Fri., October 25 at 9:30 a.m. A plane will fly overhead to take an aerial picture of our red ribbon. We would love for parents to join us to provide a “frame” our ribbon. All participants are kindly asked to wear red and to arrive at the school no later than 9:00 a.m. to begin placement on the field. Please sign in at the main office and you will be directed from there. Please contact your building principal with any questions that you may have.
