The idea of being drug free does begin with each of us. No one knows that better than many Taylor elementary and middle school students who were honored recently for their work in the “Drug Free Begins With Me” art project.
On January 19, those students were recognized for their artwork in various categories that targeted the theme.
Student winners were recognized in the categories of poetry, essays, pictures, posters, performing art and speeches. Journeys of Hope Church hosted the dinner and awards ceremony. Beaumont Oakwood and the Taylor Teen Health Center helped support the contest.
The student participants, teachers and principals helped find creative ways to commit to remaining drug free.
Sandra Kluk and Simone Calvas organized the event and Judge Geno Salamone spoke to all the students about remaining drug free.
