Members of the Colchester Police Department and the Malletts Bay School participate in Red Ribbon Week, a week commemorating the activities and dedication exhibited by Enrique ‘Kiki’ Camerena, a Drug Enforcement Special Agent killed in the line of duty in 1986 by members of a drug cartel in Mexico.
Modeled after his statement to his mother who raised concern with his choice of a profession, Kiki is remembered to have told her, “Even if I’m only one person, I can make a difference.” Keeping with the concept of making a positive difference in their lives and their impact with the lives of others, students are encouraged to:
- Avoid the abuse of drugs
- Support positive alternatives
- Strive towards positive futures
