Steering Young People of Frederick County Away From Drug Abuse
"Drug abuse is a serious problem in our county, our state, and our nation. We need to do everything we can to make sure our young people are aware of the dangers of drugs. More than that though, we need to make sure that kids themselves have the loudest voices rallying against drug abuse among their friends and peers." - Council Member Billy Shreve
On December 16, 2015, County Council Member Billy Shreve and Dr. Terry Alban, Superintendent of Frederick County Public Schools, kicked-off the Classmates4Life Video Contest. This contest called upon students to create a 30-60 second video that would motivate their peers to stay away from drugs. It was open to all Frederick County students from grades K-12.
