George West Elementary students were treated to an exciting BMX show by The Air Assault Stunt Team on Thursday, Oct. 30, the fourth day of Red Ribbon Week. The organization, which is based out of California, also had shows scheduled in Beeville and Mathis.

The performances are much more than simple bicycle riding demonstrations. The show choreographs aerial acrobatics with high energy music, incorporating audience participation while sharing a passion for living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. Students cheered with excitement as they performed BMX stunts such as the turn down, the 360*, and the tail whip. Sixth grade student, Jake Crisp responded to the event, “They were awesome! They had a ‘fun box’ and ‘quarter pipe ramps’ and did tons of tricks. Their message was to not do drugs. They said if they (the bikers) were doing drugs, they wouldn’t be able to have fun like this and do what they love.”

Principal, Tommy Williams commented after the show, “I wanted to use an avenue that interests students to get the message out that drugs are bad for the students of George West. This was a great venue to share just that message.”
