On Monday, the Coffee County Anti-Drug Coalition along with the Manchester City Police Department visited the Juniors & Seniors at Coffee County Central High School for a Prom Drug Awareness Rally. Manchester City Police Chief Mark Yother & the Coffee County Anti-Drug Coalition’s Christina Merino pointed out the dangers in substance abuse, especially on Prom & Graduation night, and they encouraged students attending Prom to take a stand against these illegal activities. The Anti-Drug Coalition presented every Junior and Senior at CCCHS with an optional pledge at the rally.

All students who sign and return their pledge to abstain from Drug & Alcohol use before the deadline today at 3pm, will be eligible to win one of 30 prizes donated by local area businesses including free hair updos, prom photos, and much more. Along with students, parents were also encouraged to sign their Juniors’ or Seniors’ petition in order for students to receive an opportunity to win extra prizes. CCCHS’s Principal Joey Vaughn stated that “One of the goals at CCCHS is to make sure that every student is safe, happy, respectful, and that they realize accountability is one of life’s most important virtues.” Catch a glimpse of Monday’s Prom Drug Awareness Rally for yourself during the Thunder TV News Video online at www.WMSRradio.com.
