Pendleton Champions campaign for smoke free campuses

The Pendleton County Champions Coalition needs your help with gathering data. This month’s billboard focuses on 24/7 smoke free campuses.  As a coalition we understand community members have an opinion.  What Champions need is to hear your opinion.  Your opinion on welcoming or not welcoming the 24/7 smoke free campus thought can be shared on our Facebook page or by tweeting us.  Champions have also set up an email account for those who do not want their opinion publicly shared with all of the social media responders.  The email is pencochampions@gmail.com.

Why 24/7 Smoke free campuses?

1. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention smoking and smokeless tobacco use are initiated and established primarily during adolescence. More than 80% of adult smokers begin smoking before 18 years of age. Additionally, adolescent smokeless tobacco users are more likely than nonusers to become adult cigarette smokers.
