    Hi Mason,
    Thank you for taking this on and, especially, for providing students with resources that they can access to be able to get help if they need it. When I talk with students about drug or alcohol use, I’m often surprised by how very, very young they were when they started and how very firmly those addictions become iron-clad.

    You know that I don’t get angry often, but it makes me crazy to think about students developing debilitating habits already in elementary and middle school that then haunt them in high school and beyond. I am furious that people who produce addictive substances actively market to youth – caring more about profit than about the damage they are doing to those who become addicted early on.

    My hope is that all the students who do NOT use take a stand for that not being tolerated here while helping their friends to access the tools they need to break their addictions (or just their bad habits). I want each Kadet to live a long, happy, and healthy life.
