Five Everett High School students and members Teens in Everett Against Substance Abuse (TEASA) last week joined more than 200 youths from across the Commonwealth at an anti-tobbaco rally at the State House.

The students met with State Senator Sal DiDomenico for more than a half-hour and discussed ways in which the tobacco industry targets youth – such as producing cheaper products that are easier for youth to afford and making candy-flavored tobacco products that utilize colorful packaging. Each of the five EHS students discussed eloquently and passionately about why they are active in tobacco-prevention efforts.

The Everett Public Schools thanks the students and everyone who made the trip to the State House an educational and productive one.

  • Tobacco is one of the biggest industries in the world and it is also one of the biggest causes of death all over the world. So, it is a great advocacy for these students to help out on this anti-tobacco rally.
