Musician Steve Russo was “kicking butts” at Rowland High School on Wednesday. The popular speaker talked to the students about “kicking” cigarette smoking.
The assembly was part of the “Kick Butts” national campaign to get teens to stop smoking. The Centers for Disease Control note that more than 3,000 teens try smoking every day and 1,000 of those become daily smokers.
It adds that 20 percent of high school students are smokers. Read about the problem and the program in an upcoming story in the Rowland Heights Highlander.
