RGC High Students Observe Red Ribbon Week

"Rio Grande City High School hosted a Grand Student assembly to kick off National Red Ribbon Week Campaign in October.  The student body was addressed by our Honorable County Judge, Eloy Vera, who gave an excellent first-hand account of the dangers and risks involving substance abuse and living on the Texas border.  He told a vivid story of growing up in South Texas with the same pressures and risks of falling prey to drugs and drug dealing, yet chose education as a key to success.  He motivated the students to be the next leaders of tomorrow and to be confident that eduction would pave their way to long-term success in life.  Other events followed throughout the week to promote healthy-living, such as law enforcement presentations, educational videos, lunch with Mr. Ciggy and a parade & bonfire.  All efforts were coordinated by Counselor, Jessica Vera-Rios, LPC and events were carried out by Kids Against Drugs (KADs).  A special thanks goes out to Judge Eloy Vera, USBP, Tri-County CSCD, Sheriff's office, RGCPD, BRBHC, STCADA, DEA, RGCCISD PD, J.P. Pinky Cruz, Baldemar Garza and Chuy Alvarez. Together, we are making a difference!
