RCHS SADD program receives awards

This past year your RCHS SADD club participated in the Advisor Incentive Program. The program included ten specific requirements all the way from conducting Safety Belt Surveys to planning and facilitating a Teen Driving Activity. Once the program requirements were met, a final report with documentation was submitted. The end result is that the RCHS Chapter received a check in the amount of $250 and the Chapter Advisor Mrs. Judith Hatfield received a check in the amount of $500. Both checks will be used for chapter activities.

As the RCHS Chapter of SADD plans for the school year, a little over 400 students attended the first information meeting on Aug. 27. Plans are under way for several events including Truck or Treat and featured speakers.

The original mission of SADD was to help young people say “No” to drinking and driving. Today, the mission has expanded. Students will tell you that positive peer pressure, role modeling and environmental strategies can prevent other destructive decisions and set a healthier, safer course for their lives. And that is why SADD has become a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide.

SADD’s Mission Statement: “To provide students with the best prevention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and other destructive decisions.”

SADD is an inclusive, not an exclusive, organization. SADD recognizes that the pressures on young people to drink, use illicit drugs and engage in other unhealthy behaviors are strong. SADD seeks not to punish or alienate those students who make unfortunate choices but rather aims to inform, educate, support and empower young people to make positive decisions in their lives.
