On February 13, 2019, students in Cumberland High School and Cumberland Middle School joined with students from other school divisions across Virginia to celebrate their comprehensive tobacco-free policies. This Spirit Day provided an opportunity for schools having 100% tobacco-free policies to showcase their commitment to creating a 100% tobacco and e-cigarette free campus. During the event, students brought awareness to their peers about the dangers associated with smoking.
Cumberland County Public Schools is one of 40 counties in Virginia having a 100% tobacco-free policy.
Cumberland High School students Anaya McClinton, Alicia Riddle, and Nadia Elasha promote
Tobacco-Free Spirit Day by setting up a table in the cafetorium to provide classmates with information about the benefits of not smoking.
