Three Angelina County Drug Free All-Star and one former Angelina County Drug Free All-Star were selected to participate in statewide Youth Leadership Council with Texans Standing Tall.

According to a release from the Angelina Coalition, these Angelina County Drug Free All-Stars traveled to the Youth Leadership Council retreat in Burnet, TX where they were able to learn the most recent trends of underage drinking and other harmful substances.

Youth Leadership Council is a youth work group that is made up of youth from around the state who are dedicated to being alcohol-free, tobacco-free and drug-free. The students will have to complete a drug-free campaign/project for their community.

We are proud that 4 of our Angelina Drug Free All-Stars were selected to take part of this statewide council. The students who were selected are Kadie Beth Wisener from Crimson Christian Academy, McKenzi Crager from Lufkin High School, Myrka Lila from Lufkin High School, and Kendrion Ferrell graduate from Hudson High School. We wish them the best of luck as they begin their term with the Youth Leadership Council.
