KINGMAN – Kingman Youth Coalition Beating Up Teen Tobacco (KYCBUTT) Club members held National Kick Butts Day activities at Kingman High and Kingman Academy of Learning.

“Both school clubs made pledge walls for their peers to pledge to be tobacco free,” Mohave County Department of Public Health Tobacco Use and Chronic Disease Prevention Program Office Specialist Annie Meredith said. “They displayed 25 headstones, some with body bags, to show the amount of people who die every 30 minutes from tobacco-related illness.”

 The club members shared informational materials with other students concerning the dangers of tobacco use. Kingman High activities took place Wednesday, March 21, while Kingman Academy activities were held Thursday, March 22.
