Red Ribbon Leadership Program
Each fall, Red Ribbon Week is celebrated across America to promote the importance of a healthy, drug-free lifestyle among our youth.
Outstanding students from Mobile and Baldwin County are selected as individuals who exemplify the 6 pillars of Character promoted by the Character Counts initiative and the Drug Education Council. These include trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
These young student leaders worked with their School Red Ribbon Coordinator to lead Red Ribbon activities on their school campus during Red Ribbon Week. These students are also challenged to plan and execute a community service project to help their peers build a connection to the community and encourage healthy lifestyle choices.
On September 30, 2019, we recognized and honored this year's outstanding young leaders at the Annual Superintendents’ Red Ribbon Ceremony at the Daphne Civic Center.
Information about the 2019-2020 Red Ribbon Leadership Program student community service projects can be found below.
