Solomon, Swanson sponsor SADD


Two teachers have the mission to provide students with the tools to inform themselves on the prevention of destructive decisions.

SADD, otherwise known as Students Against Destructive Decisions, has two new sponsors. Teachers Andrea Solomon and Yvonne Swanson took over the SADD program for the school year.

“The first meeting went extremely well,” Swanson said. “We had many excited students with new ideas for this year’s activities.”

From bringing in a drunk driving simulator to making seniors take a prom promise, SADD has done a lot to help the community and create drunk driving awareness.

The driving simulator shows people what it would be like to drive under the influence or while distracted.

The prom promise asks seniors to not drive drunk after prom, or get into a car with someone who is under the influence. Anyone who goes to prom must sign the prom promise.

SADD meets about once a month. They had their last meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 2, specifically planned to meet before homecoming.

“We are very excited to be a part of SADD,” Solomon said. “On the same note, it’s very new to us, and we will probably rely on the students who were involved last year.”
