Last week, the BCHS SADD leaders took a business getaway to Tybee Island. On this trip, we were able to mix work and fun to better our leadership skills.
Throughout that week, we planned our schedule and revisited our vision and mission statement. Overall, this trip allowed us to prepare for our biggest year yet.
We had six of our leadership members come along on this trip: Adrienne Kennedy, President, Hannah Butler, Leadership Trainer, Will Kroymann, Leadership Trainer, JaQuan Sanders, Treasurer, Ahmad Dukes, Leadership Trainee, and me. I am the publicist for the club. I also have the role of an event planner for our group. We also had six other incoming freshmen come for half of our trip. These new SADD members are the base foundation of the next leadership team to come.
The SADD club is a nationally recognized organization that stands for Students Against Destructive Decisions.
It was brought to Bryan County when concerns of drug use among the youth was brought to the county’s attention.
Today, the BCHS SADD club has over 75 members and a large leadership team. Last year we participated in many activities such as: volunteering at Georgia
Tech’s science olympiad, visiting the nation’s capital where we gave a presentation to other drug-free advocates, and spending countless hours trying to bring our community together.
This year, we plan to revisit everything we did last year as well as work on our club’s cultural competency. The club also plans to open our Teen Center to the public and host many community events there.
Our SADD leaders spent a week of the summer planning and providing ideas to bring to the new school year. We are confident in the new things we have planned, and we cannot wait to share them more in detail in the upcoming months!
