As part of our Red Ribbon Week, we had the great fortune of inviting Steven Dodge from The S.L.A.T.E. Project to speak to our 11th and 12th graders. Steven spoke candidly about his experiences growing up, from his first guzzle of beer at age 10 to his eventual drug addiction and the rapid downward spiral his life took. Steven also shared details about his life as a recovering addict, with the feeling that every moment alive is a gift that must be cherished.
Students were deeply impacted by his story and thankful for the chance to hear warnings from someone not much older than they are.
