Early Intervention

Name of Board: Fletcher

County: Henderson

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.
