Red Ribbon Week Speaker: Grandson Of R.J. Reynolds Speaks Out Against Big Tobacco

Patrick Reynolds, the grandson of tobacco magnate R.J. Reynolds, spoke last Monday at Butler and Eastmont middle schools as part of Red Ribbon Week. Reynolds is Executive Director of the Foundation for a Smokefree America, and is among the most high-profile and well-known advocates for a smoke-free society.

Reynolds, who denounced the tobacco industry in testimony to Congress, has lobbied for passage of anti-tobacco policies and legislation. He is especially interested in spreading his tobacco-free message to teenagers who, according to research, are the most likely to begin using tobacco.

Reynolds, who “turned his back” on his family’s tobacco empire after his father died from a smoking-related illness, showed images demonstrating how the tobacco industry has targeted youth. “This is evil stuff,” he told students about Big Tobacco’s marketing machine. “They just care about making a buck at the expense of your precious, precious health.”

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
