  • Q: What takes very little time, requires no money and can make a major impact on our youth?

    A: Membership with ACES!
  • My parents shared with me a survey from ACES regarding actual drug and alcohol use of my peers at high school. …My perception was that everyone was doing it. In reality, the survey confirmed that most kids weren’t doing drugs or alcohol. These results shattered my perception of reality. That’s when I decided it was time to get off the sidelines and lead.

  • Leaders help to identify alternatives to negative and destructive behaviors. I know through discussions with my friends that my choices have enabled them to say no to drugs and alcohol. I feel that I have helped to make a difference at Avon Middle High School.
