SADD Presents at Spring Hill Middle School

SADD Presents at Spring Hill Middle School
Posted on 04/02/2018
On March 30, 7th grade students at Spring Hill Middle School (SHMS) attended an assembly presented by Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) about the effects smoking can have on their body.

SADD is Spring Hill High School's program focusing on peer education and prevention of destructive decisions, such as underage drinking, drug use, teen violence and teen suicide.

At this annual assembly, students learned about the effects of smoking from SHHS student members of SADD by traveling to several different stations. Also in attendance was Olathe Medical Center (OMC) and the Johnson County Regional Prevention Center (JCRPC). OMC showed students what tar can do to their lungs while JCRPC shared information on vaping and e-cigarettes.

Students spent 10-minutes at each station and wrapped up the event with a Q&A session.

"Hearing this information from the high school students has a bigger impact on the middle school students than hearing the same information from an adult," said Helen Kuttes, nurse at SHMS. "Our hope is that by providing students with this information, they will make wise choices when it comes to their health."
