They join seven other Council members who will represent the thousands of SADD student in chapters across Indiana.
Local organizers of the SADD program are proud that Fowler and Walker have both been chosen from students throughout the state.
The Student Leadership Council (SLC) advised the Indiana SADD Policies and Programs staff plans and implements the annual SADD celebration and serves as a state student representation network.

SADD, at the state and national level, is a leading peer-to-peer youth education, prevention and activism organization and is committed to empowering young people to lead initiatives in their school and communities.
Founded in 2001 with only 80 known chapters, today Indiana SADD has nearly 250 chapters in middle schools, high schools and colleges throughout the state.
SADD highlights prevention of many destructive behaviors and attitudes that are harmful to young people, including underage drinking, substance abuse, risky and impaired driving and teen violence.
