The teens involved with the Carter County branch of TNStrong are making great progress towards tobacco prevention in the county. They have gotten hundreds of signatures from students pledging not to use tobacco, attended summits to learn more about prevention and cessation, and translated that into meaningful programs for Carter County youth.
Most recently, they have completed another photo shoot for their Starters Never Start Campaign. This features local athletes of various ages using the phrase Starters Never Start. These images are shared in schools and on social media to show that using tobacco doesn’t make kids any cooler or more successful.
We’re proud to see these kids hard at work in partnership with Carter County Drug Prevention. The future is bright for a healthier county and state thanks to these boys!
