Drug-Free Coalition Receives Purdue University 2016 Exemplary Community Partner Award

The Drug-Free Coalition received the Purdue University 2016 Exemplary Community Partner award and a $1000 check during half-time at the Men's Basketball game on February 14, 2017.  It is an honor to receive this award.  Thank you to Purdue University!     

Purdue presents this award annually to an organization that provides opportunities for their students to expand their education by sharing in the great work of that organization.   The Coalition was nominated by a student for his/her work with Donna Meloy, Asset Building Specialist, in providing alcohol and drug prevention programs to local students in grades 6-8.  This is the student's statement about the impact of working with our Asset Building program:  

"The Tippecanoe County Drug-Free Coalition enhances my education by providing an avenue to use my knowledge for the good of others.  After teaching dozens of classes and talking with hundreds of middle school students, my passion for community outreach has blossomed and will not be quenched."
