Borman School student wins D-M anti-abuse contest

Fifth-grader Celeste Vasquez created the winning entry in Davis-Monthan Air Force Base’s 2008 child abuse prevention poster contest.

She attends Borman Elementary School, a Tucson Unified School District school on the Air Force base.

Thirty posters were submitted. They were judged by D-M airmen.

Vasquez’s poster says: “Even though we’re a big world, we should all come together and take a stand. Kids shouldn’t be afraid to go home.”

The poster will be used during the base’s fifth annual child abuse prevention campaign in April, which is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The poster will be reproduced and displayed around the base.

D-M’s family advocacy outreach manager, Marley Smith, urged families dealing with stress to use services available to them “before a situation escalates into violence or child abuse.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
