West Jones High School Peer Council members held the Grim Reaper Walk in observance of the Great American Smoke-Out. Council members marched through the halls representing people who have died from tobacco related illness, while bringing awareness to the dangers of tobacco use.

Reed, members of the Mustang Pride drum line, played cadence during the walk. Also helping with the event were Denise Graves, WJHS Peer Council teacher, and Teresa Harrison, Safe and Drug Free Schools, Coordinator for Jones County School District.
