Thank you to the Centennial High School (CHS) administration for partnering with HC DrugFree to present pre-prom programs to Juniors and Seniors. The two programs were held on Friday, April 22 and addressed some of the many dangers of substance use.
A special thank you to Mr. Shannon Garrett for presenting and overseeing this unique and memorable educational event complete with fog, masks, wigs, costumes, and much student interaction. There were appearances by Shame, Guilt, and the adorable but manipulative Addiction trying to entice everyone to follow him. Students were encouraged to support each other, to seek help if needed, and were warned not to fall into the trap set by Addiction.
Thank you to Mr. Jacob Traver, the drama teacher at CHS, for the many hours you committed to working with Mr. Garrett and to the extremely talented CHS drama students for sharing their acting skills. We thank all of the CHS student volunteers. Finally, the event would not have been the same without the bright/flashing lights and haunting/loud music, so thank you to the CHS team for delivering right on cue from behind the scenes.
Mr. Garrett is with Congruent Counseling Services, and for many years, HC DrugFree has partnered with Congruent Counseling Services on educational programs for both adults and students.
