Students from the Canon McMillan High School in Washington County were one of many who attended the SADD Conference in Seven Springs. Ramona Cholak Jenks is a Prevention Specialist at Washington Drug and Alcohol Commission and a co-advisor of this SADD team. She reports that the SADD Conference went very well, with over 600 attendees.
Students were energized and inspired by the activities, which included a getting-to-know-you session, a dance contest with the Crash-Test Dummies, a drug and alcohol facts contest, and several workshops.
The Washington Drug and Alcohol Commission and Fayette Drug and Alcohol Commission displayed “Care Enough Not To Share” PA Stop campaign materials, which were very well-received. Attendees took the “Care Enough Not to Share” and “Don’t Add to the Numbers” rubber bracelets, posters, and pamphlets. Anyone who is interested can download, print, order and/or distribute these materials from PA Stop by visiting the website http://pastop.org/
The Canon McMillan SADD group would like to send a huge thank-you to the following people who provided funding to make our trip to the conference possible: Cheryl Andrews, Executive Director with Washington Drug and Alcohol Commission, Colleen Lantz, Southwest Regional Traffic Safety Network and the Commonwealth Prevention Alliance.
