SADD Hosts Assembly for Drug Fact Week

Posted: Updated:

Recent national statistics show about a third of high school seniors nationwide report using an illicit drug sometime in the last year.

 As part of National Drug Facts Week, members of the Bishop Ryan Catholic School SADD Chapter sponsored a unique school assembly Wednesday afternoon featuring Dr. Vicki Michels, Director of Addiction Studies at Minot State University, to provide students with factual information about drugs and drug abuse, so they can make informed decisions for themselves. 

  "Ultimately, when educating students, we want to show they can make the best decisions and that's what we want in education is for our students to be able to make good decisions and ultimately, that goes back to our SADD group of Students Against Destructive Decisions and wanting our kids to make good decisions," says Jennifer Lunde, Bishop Ryan School Counselor.

 "Drugs are a bad thing and people need to know what it does for your body and it just does really bad things and there are no really good things that it does to you and the risks are bad.  It's just not really worth it," says Mason Merck, Bishop Ryan Sophomore.
