Students and Community Create Video to Prevent Drug Use

An amazing community and school effort was revealed yesterday showing how hundreds of adults and youth can come together for a single cause, to prevent drug and substance abuse.

The Anderson County High School drug prevention club, called Saving Our Students, along with the Anderson County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy Board, Downtown Lawrenceburg KY, and others helped produce a high school wide video to build school pride and encourage students to participate more in school activities, which in turn has been shown to reduce drug use

The initial planning of the video was led by student leaders in the SOS group. The students, along with help from Joe Markiewicz from the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center, Donna Crain Drury from AC-ASAP, Justin Silverman from Downtown Lawrenceburg KY, and ACHS teacher Elizabeth Swartz, created the video in a few months time.

The video highlights the entire high school with many clubs and teams performing throughout, and student performers lip syncing to the music. Staff members also performed, and two aerial videographers, Alex Swartz and Jay Morgan Willard, helped film parts of the video. At the end, members of the community were invited to join in the filming at the ACHS football field.

Be sure to watch the video above to see the outstanding work produced by the students and community.
