Edison Students on Teens and Drugs at Library

For a number of years, the Edison Fundamentals of Communication students have been educating young people on bullying, drug abuse, and literacy. They have visited nearly every school district in Darke County in order to talk about the consequences of risky or abusive behavior.

A team of Edison State Darke County students will be talking to parents and other adults about the drug dangers teens face today, and how to help them make the right choices. The presentation will take place Thursday, May 3, 6:30 p.m. at the Greenville Public Library. Fundamentals of Communications students Kathryn Combs, Morgan Sparks, Jackson Plush, Josh Schrock and Autaum Moore have been working on their team project since the middle of March.

The Edison State students will discuss the Middle School years, grades five through eight, which they consider the dangerous years when teens are most likely faced with decisions about drugs. The presentation will include a discussion of the harder drugs, such as heroin, fentanyl and carfentanil, but will focus mostly on the drugs to which teens are usually introduced… tobacco, vapes, alcohol, prescription drugs and marijuana.

The Edison State team will share the dangers of these drugs and what parents can do to help their children make the right choices. Their research has been extensive and includes the latest available information. Questions will be taken from the audience. This is a free program with light refreshments provided.
