A few highlights for the springtime:
First, a big hand and a "job well done” to our Diversion
Director, Heather Baker, for the "Every 15 Minutes” program held in April. This
anti-drunk-driving program was eight months in the making, and included a mock
crash, mock court, a film, an all-school assembly at St. Helena High School,
first responders, a med-evac helicopter and a follow-up retreat. Over 600
students attended the assembly, as well as numerous community members,
teachers, administrators, guest speakers and parents. What a great program for
high school students, and for the entire community!
