Several members of the Bainbridge High School student council attended Thursday’s meeting of the Decatur County Board of Education, where they were congratulated for helping spearhead a tobacco-free campaign in the schools. Dr. Fred Rayfield noted that the BHS student council was concerned the schools’ tobacco-free policy was “not visible enough,” and developed signs for each school. Those signs proclaim each campus as tobacco-free and feature the Bainbridge Bearcat mascot. “They had some great ideas and they didn’t let them die,” Rayfield said. Above, BHS principal Tommie Howell and senior student council members Quiana Childs and Austin Sapp hand out a sign to John Johnson Elementary School principal Kathy Varner.
