Student Prevention Leadership Team

On Friday, May 29th, the Whiteford High School Student Prevention Leadership Team (SPLT) put on an event for 7th and 8th grade students. Students were challenged to address their prior beliefs and feelings towards substance abuse while participating in some ice breakers and challenges with our SPLT members. This 100% student planned and student led activity was an amazing time, with many older students forming strong, positive bonds with our younger ones. We look forward to nurturing these relationships in years to come, to help keep the Whiteford community drug free. A big shout out goes to Whiteford Juniors Maria Aguado and Samantha Westfall who took a large leadership role in putting this event together, as well as to all of our high school facilitators for making a memorable experience.
