The quest speaker was Tim Vanderslice of the Southwest Mississippi  Bureau of Narcotics.  Officer Vanderslice offered a passionate plea to students to love them selves, recognize the dangers of drug use and abuse, and to spread the word to friends and family the importance of being healthy and drug free. The program ended with a thrilling performance by Ameriah Taylor as she pledged to be drug-free and encouraged and motivated her peers to also be drug-free.
