Name of Board: Fletcher
Grantee: Fletcher Elementary School
Title of Project: Early Intervention
Description of project: All educational dollars go to the elementary school to teach a curriculum on alcohol and the effects of alcohol use.
Why you chose it: We used to split between the elementary and high schools, but we switched gears and decided to send it all to the elementary school. Tony, the store manager, stated; “By the time they reach high school, it’s too late.”
Who this project impacted: Elementary students, their parents, and ultimately the community.
Results of project: We receive a quarterly thank you for supporting youth education and helping prevent early use of alcohol.
