Warsaw High School Student Speaks At Indiana Statehouse On Nicotine Impacts
WARSAW — Warsaw Community High School junior Cayman Blake was recently invited to speak at the Indiana Statehouse on the impact of tobacco and nicotine.
Blake spoke alongside Steve Long, Hancock Regional Health CEO; and Indiana Chapter of the American College of Cardiology President Dr. Vijay Rao, MD, PhD. Also in attendance was Tiffany Nichols, American Lung Association advocacy director.
Blake shared about his passionate commitment for a tobacco-free future. This passion was fueled by the loss of his grandfather at the age of 59 to tobacco use, which prompted Blake to try and safeguard others from this kind of loss through joining Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. He hopes to create an impact in the Warsaw community and beyond.
Blake is also a member of the Kosciusko Cares Youth Coalition and the youth sector representative for the Drug-Free Kosciusko coalition. He is excited to continue advocating for a tobacco-free generation.
