THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - Students at Thomas County Middle School have been participating in contests and other activities all week, exposing them to the importance of being drug free.

Wednesday morning, students wore red for a Red Ribbon Week assembly.

Thomasville Police Sergeant Waylon Parker gave students a preview of his K9 dog Jester in action. 

Parker said it's never too early to teach your kids about drug safety. 

Parker said, “They're the future law makers, they're the future politicians, the future doctors, lawyers.  So it's important to encourage them to make the right choices now, so that we're better off as a society down the road.”

Parker said it's also important to teach kids that drug use affects not only the user, but also his or her family and community.
