On October 26-28 2022 Springville High Schools SADD (Students Against Destructive Decision) planned Red Ribbon week. Which started in 1985, in honor Kiki Camarena, who was murdered by drug traffickers in Mexico City. The red ribbon became a symbol of intolerance toward the use of drugs.

SADD planned on October 26 to dress in red, then the next day wear your Springville colors to team up against drugs, and on the last day to wear blue to stay true to not doing drugs.  SADD also set up a table for students to sigh their name to pledge to be drug free, get a red ribbon, and a piece of candy. On October 31st, the senior and junior members went to Springville Elementary school to promote living drug free to the pre-k through 5th grade students. Springville’s counselor, Mrs. Whiteside, said Red Ribbon week is important and she said, “It’s a great reminder for students to stay drug free.” SADD sponsored another great Red Ribbon Week at SHS!
