Neighborhoods Matter: Eighth graders in the Highline School District have at higher risk of drug use than students in King County overall. The Coalition for Drug-Free Youth addresses youth drug use by educating, inspiring and empowering us to create a healthy environment in North Highline. Maddi Story and VeeVee Wang will introduce us to the Coalition’s “I Know What’s Right for Me” marijuana and vaping prevention campaign.
Congratulations to the Cascade Middle School Drug & Alcohol Prevention Team for their recent Green Globe award! King County recognized the students as a “Leader in Community Stewardship” for their work at Dick Thurnau Memorial Park.
“From picking up litter to habitat restoration projects, they have done more than a dozen after-school events and are committed to making a positive impact in their community.”
