The school district where I am assistant principal contracted services with the Alliance Against Drugs this past school year. The Alliance provides wonderful opportunities for students in grades 5 – 8. I was able to send five students and one teacher to a leadership summit that helped students learn skills to become student leaders in the school. The Alliance also sponsored a poster contest for 7th grade students and invited five of the students to the award luncheon to meet and have their picture taken with Ben Roethlisberger. Debbie Kehoe and her staff are wonderful and we are planning more events for this school. It is so important to educate students and parents about drugs at an early age and the Alliance helps us to do that.
