Oxford Students Tackle Tobacco

Above the Influence members, L-R, Zachary Roth, Jaelynn Miller, and Emily Ferriera lead a discussion for the Great American Smokeout.

The Great American Smokeout is a nationally observed day to encourage tobacco smokers to give up their habit and become victorious over tobacco.  It is also an opportunity  as a preventative measure to educate non-smokers on the dangers of smoking.  This year, the Above the Influence Club at Oxford Central School delivered a smoking prevention education program in observance of the Great American Smokeout.  The club members educated 2nd and 3rd graders on the dangers and consequences of smoking and second-hand smoke.  Together they created smoking awareness messages to use as a school-wide smoking prevention campaign.  The program was coordinated in association with the Coalition for Healthy and Safe Communities, Warren County Branch, under the direction of Prevention Connections,  a program of the Family Guidance Center of Warren County.
