The Stockdale National Honor Society proudly sponsored the national event, “Kids against Tobacco.” The students joined thousands of young people at hundreds of events from coast to coast to take action on March 23 -- the day for youth to “stand out ... speak out ... and seize control against big tobacco.”

As the sponsor for the Stockdale National Honor Society (NHS), I am so proud of the NHS. They did a fantastic job of bundling the prizes, organizing the event, and handling all the announcements and games for the day! I hope that the day made the students think about the dangers that are lurking in the tobacco!

The students handed out red tickets to every single student at Stockdale High School and the staff during the first period. We then instructed students and staff to be listening for some special announcements all day. They were told they would learn some facts about saying “no” to big tobacco!

Drawings were held to give out T-shirts, bundled with hacky sacks and a Frisbee. Honor Society students also went into the classrooms and had mini-games of asking true or false, percentage, and just random information about the dangers of tobacco. If a student answered correctly, they received a prize of either a hacky sack or a Frisbee!

You should have seen the hands going up to answer questions. I saw so much interaction between students to get the right answer and they were having fun at the same time as learning very important facts about the dangers of tobacco.

Winners for the day on the drawing using the red tickets were: Carey Murphy, Alyssa May, John Rogers, Chloe Casey, Logan Preshon, Clay Preshon, Aaron Shaw, Alex Hernandez, Kenny Marrou, Josh Williams, Jacob Cardenas, Zac Cavazos, Courtney Campbell, Nicki Fackelman, and Cassie Birdwell.

We had many students win hacky sacks and Frisbees by answering correctly in the classroom setting during the interactive games hosted by the Honor Society.

Thank you, Stockdale High School, for performing at your best! I am so proud to be part of your high school.

Sonya Pruski is the sponsor of the Stockdale National Honor Society.
