Another community college campus is banning smoking.
The Lenoir Community College Board of Trustees passed a policy this week to ban tobacco products on college-owned or college-controlled property on May 14. That's the day after spring graduation.
A message from the Brantley Briley, Lenoir Community College President notes the policy will, quote "please some and displease others." Briley continued, "It is my opinion that we will be a healthier and cleaner campus as a result of the Board's passing this policy."
The memo said the administration will be releasing information on cessation programs and other opportunities regarding the new policy soon.
