Wayland High School SADD Shines Day
Wayland High School SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) will join thousands of their peers across the country on Wednesday, February 5, 2014, with an award ceremony to recognize the leaders in their group and to show the community what SADD has done for Wayland. The ceremony will be held on the national SADD Shines Day to recognize the power of positive peer engagement and to honor teens’ commitment to helping young people fulfill their life dreams.
SADD was founded at Wayland High School on the principle that young people are uniquely powerful in keeping their friends safe and alive. WHS SADD students will show their SADD spirit and celebrate national SADD Shines Day with a special ceremony centered on a homemade lantern. As the unifying symbol for this annual event, the lit lanterns will demonstrate how SADD students light the way to making our schools and communities stronger and healthier places.
“National SADD Shines Day focuses the country’s attention on the optimism and energy of young people in creating meaningful change in their personal lives, schools, and communities across the country,” stated Penny Wells, SADD President and CEO. “Together, with the many caring adults who have helped guide the work, thousands of young lives have been saved along the way. This unique legacy involves caring and action, empowering young people to empower each other.”
All members of the community are invited to attend Wayland’s SADD Shines Day activities on Wednesday, February 5th at 7:00 pm in the High School auditorium.
