Finish Lines

Finish Lines

Whew!  It has been a fast and furious spring around here.  Please excuse my delay in writing.  We have had a very busy spring with the 24th year of our Safe Sober Prom Night program.  We have now merged into graduation season and have crossed another finish line.


Our Daggett Shuler team personally went to 41 high schools in nine counties all across the triad area.  We have been informed that we are now the largest and longest running privately funded initiative of its type in the country.

Just like any other endurance activity we got a bit fatigued at times.  However, every time fatigue started to set in we never failed to be inspired and uplifted by the next group of students we visited.

The founding principles of the program – leadership by example, and positive peer pressure – are the two most influencing factors in young people today.  The good news is our current crop of young people are the best, brightest, and most motivated we have ever seen.  What they need from us … all of us … is leadership guidance and direction.

If we continue to wrap our collective arms of encouragement and support around our young people we will have many more successful finish lines in front of us.  The successes from this year already have us excited for Safe Sober Prom Night 2015 and our 25th anniversary!  There’s always another finish line … we just need to stay after it.

Another finish,
