Prominent public speaker, Mike McGowan, came and presented to the entire Sturgeon Bay High School student body January 26th.
McGowan, an Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) trained speaker, spoke with students and faculty. His focus was encouraging teens to make healthy choices. He used humorous anecdotes and a sincere voice to address making the ‘right’ decision. Moreover, McGowan spoke with AODA (Project 180) student leaders and discussed strategies on helping other students who struggle with substance abuse.
This is what McGowan had to say after the event:
Mike McGowan has traveled to schools for the last sixteen years – talking to over two million kids. Simply, Sturgeon Bay High School was left with a very positive energy after McGowan’s departure.
