Last month, three students from Two Harbors High School joined a group from the American Lung Association to lobby at the Capitol for stronger tobacco prevention and control.

These student were amazing and their passion shined brightly. One student in particular, Abigail Hefter, did an incredible job. She wrote and recited a poem in front of an audience of about 200 youth and adults about her personal passion for this work.
