The celebration is meant to highlight the intolerance of drugs in schools across New Mexico

"Red Ribbon Week is just a neat way to remind students that they are in control of their future and that their decisions, what they choose to do now will follow them and help them in their future," said  Jenger Wilkonn, a fourth-grade teacher at Sunset Elementary

The motto for Monday’s event was "My future matters, I'm drug free.”

Jordan Garner stands by that motto. He said Red Ribbon Week inspires him and his classmates to say no to drugs.

"It's is so us as kids will make a promise to never do drugs in our life, and we'll become very responsible adults," Jordan said.

Monday’s event honored Enrique Camarena, a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, who fought to ban drugs.  

He was murdered while on assignment in Mexico.
