Students at DeKalb West School joined with youth across the nation for the annual Kick Butts Day. The day of activism on March 21 was to empower youth to stand out, speak up, and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events across the United States and world. During lunch students stopped by a display table that showed “Mr. Gross Mouth,” a model that shows all the potential health problems that can occur in a mouth alone from the effects of tobacco.
