On Oct. 24, during an activity for Red Ribbon Week students from Thomson High School were given the opportunity to see the affects of drugs and alcohol on their vision by trying on Fatal Vision Goggles brought over by Senior Trooper Tommy Crafton. After students put on a pair of goggles they were told to walk a straight line or to shake another person's hand. Students were having a hard time completing either task.

The Thomson High School chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) sponsored a membership drive during Red Ribbon Week for students interested in being a positive influence by encouraging their peers to make healthy lifestyle decisions. SADD is a national organization celebrating its 25th anniversary as a peer-to-peer youth education program. Pictured, THS SADD executive council members Kalyn Kitchings and Ashley Lively encourage Alisha Whitaker, far left, and Daniel Carter, far right to join.
