Dardanelle EAST Sponsors Dardanelle Athletes as Our Heroes for a Day

“You really don’t know how far your influence can go until you visit with young kids who look up to you…”

"You really don't know how far your influence can go until you visit with young kids who look up to you" said Dardanelle athlete Chad as he and others enjoyed a day spent with kids who want to "be just like them."

Working with the 15th Judicial Drug Coalition, Dardanelle EAST students Jill and Cassie developed an "Our Heroes" promotion for the elementary students to advocate against the use of drugs. The students asked nine Dardanelle athletes to participate as models for anti-drug posters.

Using Adobe In-Design and Photoshop, the students created posters with various anti-drug slogans with the athletes pictured as "Our Heroes". These posters were hung at the elementary school for a presentation featuring the athletes as heroes who participate in a healthy lifestyle.

Two videos developed for the Coalition by EAST students were shown: a music video, "Live Above the Influence", written and performed by a previous DHS EAST student and produced by Jill and Cassie; and another video developed by Teddy and Tyler, who created the music and script and filmed and edited the piece, titled "Don't Become a Statistic".

Copies of the posters and videos were provided to the 15th Judicial Drug Coalition for use on the stopmeth.com website.
