Tyler ISD students join peers across nation in tobacco-free campaign

March 23, 2017


Tyler ISD secondary schools recently participated in the 2017 Texas Tobacco-Free Kids Day (TTFKD), an annual event that encourages students from all ages to live tobacco-free.


The goal of TTFKD is to get every school in Texas involved in the effort to help students make healthy choices by not using tobacco now and in the future.


Participating campuses were Early College High School, RISE Academy, John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools, and Three Lakes, Hogg, Dogan, Boulter and Hubbard middle schools.


Studies show that 70 people die every day in Texas from tobacco related causes. To help illustrate this startling statistic, 70 students at each participating campus were given a Texas Tobacco-Free Kids Day

T-shirt to wear for the day. The illustration reminded students to help create healthier futures for themselves and their friends by remaining tobacco free.


Held in conjunction with Kick Butts Day, a national event sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, TTFKD is sponsored by the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas School Safety Center, and is an annual celebration of youth leadership and activism in tobacco prevention efforts.
