On January 28th, nationally known speaker and former NBA player Chris Herren will address our students. Now 11 years in recovery and father of three teens, Herren encourages them to face their pressures without using alcohol or drugs, to be the person their friends and family have known and loved. In the evening, he will present a different message asking parents to support their teens with the same intensity they bring to academic and athletic efforts. For Herren and others with substance use disorders "the first day" was in high school with a red solo cup of Miller Lite. Nobody starts with heroin.
We encourage parents and grandparents to attend the 7:30 pm presentation as a follow up to the student presentation. We expect a standing room only crowd so please register for your free ticket that must be presented for admission.
