HCC, Kaplan College of Hagerstown join Smoke-Free School Zone campaign

July 21, 2008

Hagerstown Community College and Kaplan College of Hagerstown joined the Smoke-Free School Zone campaign. Events were held at each campus to kick off the program.

The events included music provided by local rap artist "The Pham," speakers and refreshments. Campus staff and students signed up to support the campaign during each event.

Each of the colleges was given "Smoke-Free School Zone" signs to post on buildings around the campuses reminding people that smoking is not allowed in public places.

Maryland passed the Clean Air Act that went into effect statewide in February. The Smoke-Free School Zone campaign was funded by the Washington County Health Department, with participation by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene/Minority Outreach and Technical Assistance program.
