Chamber, School Board Observe Red Ribbon Week

The Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce and the school board are spreading the word about the toll from drug addiction, coming together for Red Ribbon Week. They're spreading drug awareness from the classroom to the workplace.

"The efforts in the school systems are anything from parades to celebrations to students signing commitment cards to the upper levels on the employee side of the house, again it's awareness and recognition in giving folks the indication of what the various signs are out there for a person who might be struggling with drugs or a controlled substance," said Dr. Bix Rathburn.

They announced winners for the Red Ribbon Week poster contest. Lennon Read, Zachary Duke and Shmya Wells took top honors.
