Four members of the Bryan County High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) club recently visited the CADCA convention at the nation’s capital to give and receive information on how to build, sustain, and involve youth with local Drug-Free Coalitions (DFC).
These four girls, Adrienne Kennedy, Dorian Stokes, Meghan Vaughn, and Hannah Butler, presented a 70-minute long presentation on how other communities could grow their own youth-led DFCs to other CADCA attendees.
They also spoke to Rep. Buddy Carter to thank him for the support he has given. An invitation to the grand opening to the new SADD sponsored teen center in Bryan County was also mentioned to the congressman, and the club has high hopes that he and his staff will be able to make an appearance this summer.
Throughout this trip, the students met with other Georgia officials regarding the school system and other countywide DFC connections, and when they arrived back home, they came prepared to spread their knowledge and awareness of drug abuse, prevention, and intervention to their peers and anyone else in need of the information.
