It’s been a busy year for Dearborn County Citizens against substance abuse as the group continues to raise awareness of drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.

CASA grantees, board members and others gathered for a Coalition Celebration Tuesday, April

30, of efforts to treat and prevent abuse and addiction. Leading off the celebration were two of CASA’s 14 Youth Ambassadors Jordan Ingle, South Dearborn, and Christy Duechle, Lawrenceburg High School, with their video highlighting the dangers of underage drinking.

The video has been running during previews at Greendale Cinema and also can be found online by clicking this link. The teens also presented the Starfish Story.

CASA Director Donna Thacker said many of the youth ambassadors could not leave school due to testing. Shelby Rose from LHS also was able to attend.
