Kiwanis heard members from SADD (Students against Destructive Decisions) from Mt. Vernon High School. The group was originally associated with a group called VOICE that worked against the use of tobacco but the group now advocates against all destructive behavior. Behaviors such as Drinking, Drugs, Smoking, Texting or Eating while driving or anything that might take attention away from driving or living responsibly. The group works to enhance awareness of harmful activities that could lead to problems. They work to educate younger students about making healthy choices. Questions about the group may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
