Black Hawk Helicopter Touches Down in Westminster for Red Ribbon Month

On a crisp fall morning, students and their families gathered in the blacktop outside Sunset Ridge Elementary to await the arrival of a Black Hawk helicopter. Each year, the Westminster Area Community Awareness Action Team (C.A.A.T.). sponsors the visit of Black Hawk helicopters to schools across the district. These visits include speeches about the importance of staying drug-free from members of the Drug Enforcement Administration and Colorado National Guard.

What’s Up WPS met with Sunset Ridge principal, Roger Vadeen just before the Black Hawk touched down in the school’s backyard. Watch the video above to see all the excitement from that morning.
