KHS Students to Hold Drug & Alcohol Awareness Forum

Seven Keystone High School students committed to serving our community and their fellow classmates form the Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) organization at Keystone. These dedicated students voluntarily spend after-school and weekend time working to improve our school and community. Presently, they are fulfilling this goal by holding a Drug and Alcohol Awareness Meeting for parents, community members, and students on Monday, March 20 from 7-8:30pm in the KHS Cafetorium.

“Reduce the Use” is the mantra of this event. Facilitated by AmeriCorps member and HPAC Specialist Morgan Craig, students identified alcohol abuse as a primary concern in our local community. To address this problem, they enlisted the help of several Lorain County organizations whose representatives will present at the event: Lisa Goodwin of the LCADA Way, Gregg Mehling of the Lorain County Drug Task Force, and Elaine Georgas, the Executive Director the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board. They will address numerous facets of this topic, including prevention and awareness. In addition, the personal stories of Bradford Skvor, a recovering addict, and Ashley Skvor, his wife and family advocate, will be shared.

Please plan to attend this Reduce the Use meeting on Monday, March 20 from 7-8:30pm in the KHS Cafetorium.

The HPAC organization is also sponsoring a carnival on Saturday, April 1 from 12-4pm at Keystone’s stadium. The carnival will feature games and will focus on raising awareness to address the issue of alcohol and drug abuse.
