Success Stories

Success Stories will highlight the Midway District Programs that are making a difference for our communities.



resistJessica Kootz was at Ellsworth Junior-Senior High School December 12, 2018 representing EC3 and recruiting students for their Resist    program.  (Also pictured are Deb Habiger from the Ellsworth County Health Department and student leader, Sara Klein. )

Resist is a youth-led, statewide movement created to FIGHT against the tobacco  industry’s influence on Kansans. 

We know that we are targets for Big Tobacco Companies’ deceitful marketing tactics and we REFUSE to fall into their trap.

We recognize and resist against big tobacco influences and we are DETERMINED to reduce tobacco-use rates in Kansas. 

Resist advocates for the de-normalization of  tobacco use among Kansas’ youth and unites communities to create one voice to stand up against the tobacco industry.
