"Bear Up Against Tobacco - We Know You Can" - Greenville High

Greenville is the County Seat in Wayne County and has a population of 444. Greenville is located on the edge of the Ozark Mountains situated in a beautiful hilly forested landscape. The city is named after Fort Greene Ville, Ohio (now Greenville, Ohio), the site where Gen. Anthony Wayne signed a treaty with the Indians after defeating them in the Battle of Fallen Timbers. It's interesting how the county (Wayne) was named for the military hero and the county seat (Greenville) was named for the place he was most famous.

The Greenville School, enrollment 286, and Principal Todd Porter, led a no smoking campaign around their mascot the bear. The business department teachers, Kelly Burton and Donita Burchard, guided volunteer youth in a coordinated slogan and PSA campaign of “Bear Up against Tobacco – We know you can!”
