Communities In Schools is partnering with local organizations to bring an anti-opioid presentation Morenci Public Schools. Our substance abuse preventionist, Courtney Agnew, has worked hard with Morenci Superintendent, Mike McAran, to solicit funds to bring powerful programming to the students. The Morenci SADD team will be on hand to help deliver information to the students, their peers. The presentation is on December 4th, 2018. Our goal is to bring this programming to all Lenawee County High School students at one point int their high school career. We will begin a high school summit next year that will run every two years to ensure all students are informed about healthy choices.
Stay tuned for more info.
