Drug-Free Council of Corrigan-Camden High School Completes Project Sticker Shock

The Drug-Free Council of Corrigan-Camden High School, funded by a grant from TxDOT, recently participated in the annual Project Sticker Shock campaign covering Angelina, Polk and Southern Cherokee County. Project Sticker Shock is a community awareness campaign that aims to make adults aware of the dangers and consequences of providing alcohol to minors. The Corrigan-Camden High School Drug-Free Council members stickered packages of alcohol at the Brookshire Brothers and the Exxon station at the corner of Hwy. 59 and Hwy. 287 with information on the consequences for purchasing alcohol for minors: one year in jail, a $4,000 fine, and/or a suspended driver’s license for 6 months.

 

Teens who start drinking before the age of 15 are four times more likely to develop dependence later in life than those who wait to drink until the age of 21 or older. With Spring Break and other end-of-school-year events approaching, the Drug-Free Council members of Corrigan-Camden High School want everyone in the community to be aware of the dangers of underage drinking and the consequences of adults buying alcohol for minors.

 

The Coalition, Inc. would like to thank the retailers for participating in this year’s Project Sticker Shock. Since 1988, The Coalition has focused on eliminating the use of harmful substances by affecting public policy, laws, attitudes and behaviors, all in an effort to foster healthy life-long choices for the local community. Drug-Free Council members are students who elect to be alcohol, drug and tobacco-free and conduct activities within their school to promote a substance-free life. For more information about the Drug-Free Council program, contact Sharon Kruk at The Coalition at 936-634-9308.
