There’s a lot we can do, I didn’t realize, on campus,” Said Dani De Los Rios, an eighteen year old, majoring in criminal justice.” I know the health field is really lucrative right now.”

The Red Ribbon club started in 1985 due to the killing of narcotics investigator, Enrique (Kiki) S. Camarena in 1985 by five armed men in Mexico where he was assigned.

Congressman Duncan Hunter and Henry Lorano, a high school friend of Camarena’s, started the red ribbon club and pledged to live drug-free lives to honor the sacrifices of all Americans who have died in the line of duty.

First Lady Nancy Reagan brought the cause to national attention in 1988 to show drug intolerance in our schools.
