Several of our high school students worked this year with the Berkeley County Prevention Board to decrease and/or eradicate alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among youth in Berkeley County.

As a part of the B.E.A.T. youth subcommittee of the board, these students participated in masters level trainings and help facilitate the implementation of environmental strategies and positive peer-to-peer relationships.

At the last board meeting held in June, we recognized the work of earch of those students.
