West Jones High School holds grim reaper exercise

Some West Jones High School students became a part of the living dead Thursday.

The school held this grim reaper exercise to symbolize the deaths caused by tobacco-related illnesses. Officials said about 29 percent of students under the age of 18 smoke, 14,000 people die each day from tobacco-related disease.

Most of the students marching lost a loved one to a tobacco-related illness.
