4th Grade Buffs Up

Fourth graders at Sage Creek Elementary were convinced to “Buff Don’t Puff!” on Wednesday, November 9th, when two athletes from Brigham Young University came and talked to them about the consequences of smoking. The students learned that when you smoke it makes it harder for you to breath, do your best in sports, and be the very best that you can be.  They got to watch a video that Jimmer Fredette and his fiancé Whitney narrated.  Other BYU Athletes were highlighted in the video.  4th graders all decided to say no to smoking so that not 92% but 100% of Utah’s students will not smoke
