Local state reps hear from students on vaping

Howard County students participated in the Indiana Department of Health’s Youth Day of Action on Wednesday at the Indiana Statehouse. Students spoke with Rep. Mike Karickhoff and Rep. Heath VanNatter about actions that can be taken to lessen the impact of tobacco products on children. The representatives met with students from their home county for more than 30 minutes, listening to personal stories of how smoking has impacted students’ lives, vaping in schools, as well as answering questions. The Howard County cohort was part of more than 200 students from 20 counties who took part in the day of action.
