WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (January 4, 2013) – A founding principle of the Safe Sober Prom Night program is positive peer pressure. Peer pressure is contagious among students in our high schools. Positive peer pressure has a profound impact on the future of our communities.
North Stokes High School students have established themselves as leaders in positive peer pressure, and they had “Everyone In!” Out of the 39 high schools that participate in the annual Safe Sober Prom Night program, now entering its 23rd year. North Stokes repeated their performance as the school with the highest percentage of student participation in the program. Not only did they repeat, this is a three-peat!
Led by their SADD team (Students Against Destructive Decisions) 100 percent of the juniors and seniors at the school signed the Safe Sober Prom Night “Do It Right!” pledge to stay safe and sober on prom night. In fact, at this school 100 percent of the students signed the pledge BEFORE the Safe Sober team even arrived to pass out T-shirts the week of their prom. Last year, when David Daggett arrived to pass out T-shirts he was greeted by a mural at the front of the school reading “Rise Above the Influence” made from the students’ signed pledge cards.
Last Friday evening between the varsity girls’ and boys’ basketball games versus their rival West Stokes, Griff Shuler and David Daggett were joined by Superintendent of Stokes County Schools, Mr. Ronnie Mendenhall, to present the highest participation award including a $500.00 check to the North Stokes SADD team and their president Rebecca Gunner.
Student actions have a positive impact on our community as a whole. With their proven dedication to living a Safe and Sober lifestyle, the students and staff at North Stokes High School exemplify that positive impact and inspire us to continue to serve our community.
For 23 years Daggett Shuler has worked with area high school students through the Safe Sober Prom Night Program. Attorney David Daggett is co-founder of the Safe Sober Prom Night community outreach program, and has reached over 400,000 local students since its inception.
