BULLHEAD CITY / MOHAVE VALLEY – Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office has scheduled a series of workshops for students and parents to discuss a variety of issues that put students at risk. The student workshops will focus on e-cigarettes and vaping awareness. The adult presentation will also include human trafficking and internet safety and is open to the entire community.
Parents and interested residents from throughout the Tri-state area may attend the free presentation on March 5 (Thursday) from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (MST) in the Mohave High School Auditorium. The presenter is Iyamide May, Brnovich’s community outreach and education coordinator.
“Vaping and e-cigarettes have become insidious health risks for students,” said Colorado River Union High School District (CRUHSD) Superintendent Todd Flora. “Many parents and guardians don’t realize that their children are using flavored vapes or e-cigarettes that look like USB flash drives. And related health problems often show up more quickly than those from tobacco use which, by the way, is still illegal on our campuses.”
Flora noted that May’s public presentation is open to not just CRUHSD parents but any community member or snowbird, including those from Bullhead City, Ft. Mohave, Golden Shores/Topock, Laughlin, Mohave Valley, Needles or Oatman.
May will also meet with students from Mohave, River Valley and CRUHSD Academy High Schools earlier the same day. The following day she’ll hold a professional development workshop for CRUHSD faculty and staff about suicide awareness and prevention. There is no cost to the school district.
