      Young folks of the Lee County community are out in full force to prohibit smoking on school grounds.

      The Tobacco Coalition group is a group of students at Lee County High School who came out to Monday's School Board Meeting to ask the board to add a line into the already existing policy to re-enforce smoking on school grounds, "specifically" to visitors.

      Lee County High School student, Chelsea Shirley says, "if students see adults using tobacco then it doesn't set an example for those students and what we want is students and adults to be tobacco free because it's healthy."

      The board will decide whether or not to add the new guidelines at the January school board meeting.
