West Central hosts Kids on the Block puppet show for Red Ribbon Week

Lorie Summers, director of the puppetry program for the Mental Health America of Georgia, traveled to West Central Elementary on Thursday with a few of her Kids on the Block puppet friends to help send a strong message to students — stay drug free. The school presented the show — an educational puppetry program that uses life-sized, multicultural puppets to promote mental wellness for children — as part of the school system’s Red Ribbon Week activities.
