On Wednesday February 15, 2017, Midlothian High School participated in a tobacco-free poll that took place in the open commons during all lunches. Coach David Brohl coordinated the event and set up a table in the open commons, where students of all grades filled out pledges to remain tobacco-free. The poll consisted of several questions that students answered honestly, pledging to be tobacco free. Mr. Brohl stated, “It’s overwhelming the support of the staff and students here at Midlothian in regards to maintaining a tobacco-free lifestyle.”
The overall event was very successful, as countless numbers of students came during their lunches to complete the pledge. A sign hung in the open commons as well, on which students pasted sticky notes pledging to remain tobacco-free. Freshman Audrey Longstaff said, “From my friends and teachers, the amount of people who pledged a tobacco-free lifestyle was awesome.” Congratulations to all the students who participated, pledging to work toward a healthy lifestyle.
