CENTRAL — The Daniel High School Chapter of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), recently launched a campaign to educate fellow students about the negative effects of alcohol, knowing their boundaries, and feeling comfortable telling others “no.
The Daniel Chapter, known as WWDD (“What Would Daniel Do?”), is part of the national SADD organization whose mission is to get students to stand up to the pressures and challenges they face in their everyday encounters.
WWDD gave away buttons and sold t-shirts with the logo “# respect the kNØw”. They shared the message that knowing your boundaries, having respect for the boundaries of others, and respecting others’ “no” is important for everyone.
This school year, WWDD also shared with students where to get help and information about dating violence, and celebrated “Kick Butts Day,” a national campaign to stop using tobacco products, with games to inform students about the negative effects of cigarettes and chewing tobacco.
With the excitement of Prom, WWDD will promote the National Alcohol Awareness campaign to prevent underage drinking. They will be promoting activities such as an informative experiment with drunk goggles, signing of a Prom Promise to not drink and drive, as well as displaying posters showing myths versus facts of underage drinking. This is to remind students to be responsible, be aware of others, and to encourage others not to drink and drive.
