  • Each year, Trimble County Middle School observes Red Ribbon Week with many other schools across the nation. Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness program observed annually in October in the United States.

    The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. This red ribbon is a unified message of our commitment towards a drug free community.
