  • Monday, April 8, 2013

The Wando School Improvement Council is sponosoring a parent-driven educational initiative about preventing alcohol and substance abuse, April 15 at the Wando Performing Arts Center. It’s called Choices 101.

In a letter signed by principal Lucy Beckham and council chairwoman Kate Darby, it noted “medical and legal experts, alongside a Charleston County School District representative, will present timely and useful information on aspects of alcohol and substance abuse.”

Topics include how substance abuse affects teenagers’ physical development and how the school district handles abuse problems occuring on school property or at a school-sponsored event.

“It takes a community of understanding to shepherd our children through the middle and high school years,” the letter continued. Speakers in attendance are: Scarlett Wilson (solicitor, ninth judicial circuit), Louis Martin (associate superintendent with the school district), Sylvia Rivers (community outreach coordinator at MUSC) and Scott Hayes (ER trauma doctor with East Cooper Medical Center and Trident Health System).

Speakers present information and then are available for questions. The event begins at 7 p.m. and is expected to last two hours.
