WARSAW —  Warsaw Community High School Junior, Cayman Blake, was recently invited to speak at the Indiana Statehouse on the impact of tobacco and nicotine.

Cayman 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 talked about his passion and commitment for a tobacco-free future, which was filed by the death of his grandfather to tobacco use when he was only 59 years old.

His death prompted Blake to try to safeguard others from this kind of loss by joining Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. He hopes to create an impact in the Warsaw community and beyond.

He is also a member of the Kosciusko Cares Youth Coalition and the Youth Sector
representative for the Drug-Free Kosciusko Coalition.

WCS is thankful for Cayman’s commitment to a tobacco-free future and for positively representing Warsaw at the Indiana Statehouse.
