Last week on Wednesday, February 15th, Kevin Rosario, Director of Community Outreach traveled to Nantucket to speak to the students of Nantucket High School, their parents, and the students of Cyrus Pierce Middle School. It was truly an amazing partnership with Nantucket High School and the Friends of Nantucket Public Schools, bringing together strong advocacy and community collaboration to serve these students.
Kevin spoke to the high school students in two groups Wednesday morning, and then the high schooler’s parents in an evening session. The evening session reinforced what was discussed with the students in the morning, to facilitate healthy discussions at home about positive choices, the science of addiction and impact on the developing brain, as well as refusal skills.
Special thank you to Hadley Dutra, Candice Tetreault, Principal Mandy Vasil, Kristen Dussault, and Brent Tartamella for making this event possible.
