BYU Football Visits PJHS for Red Ribbon Week

PJHS' annual Red Ribbon Week was held recently to mobilize the school and community to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Students participated in a banner contest to stamp out drugs, collectively walked 500 miles - each student walked 1/2 mile around campus, ran or cheered on runners in a 2 mile fun run, created a flash mob, and listened to speakers from BYU's football team including Tanner Mangum-QB, Nate Carter-RB, and Kurt Henderson-WR. The speakers stressed their success as a part of healthy lifestyle choices and how we all can be successful by making good choices.

We also heard from our very own in-house student band led by Mr. Plaisted on guitar, Jett Jacob and Kirienn Marrott-guitars, Tregan Palmer-drums, Mindy Riding-keyboard, with Brooke Black and Audrey Herget singing. Mr. Aintablian, Mrs. Holt and Mrs. Reid also made special appearances.

Thank you to everyone who organized during the week and made it a huge success. Our students did a great job sending the message that it's better to choose healthy lifestyles over drugs.
