Kingman Academy of Learning gets lesson from KYCBUTT kids

From KYCBUTT youth coalition coordinator Annie Meredith:

The KYCBUTT girls did a brief prevention presentation to 375 students of the Kingman Academy of Learning Intermediate School. This was the first time they had ever presented as a club and they created the skit themselves. This presentation was requested by the principal Mr. Lillis as a Red Ribbon Week Activity. They did the skit showing the different chemicals that are in tobacco, gave some statistics/facts/secondhand smoke info, and did a demonstration on what it is like to breathe for someone with emphysema or COPD (the students sprint back & forth in the gym 3 times and then plug their nose and breathe through a short straw) once the youth did the demonstration we had them tell the other students how it made them feel.
