To Narconon Fresh Start:

Drug Prevention and Education

Our school has had several presenters throughout the years. It seemed that presentations had little or no impact on our students. On the other hand, your presentation has been far and beyond one of the best we’ve had in our school. You delivered the presentation in a unique way. What I mean by unique is that you presented it appropriately at grade. You were knowledgeable, enthusiastic and funny. It kept the students engaged and they actually enjoyed it, and had fun. I would not hesitate to recommend your program to other schools.

Hope to have you visit us again in the near future.

Dear Narconon Fresh Start,

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude to your organization for your efforts in drug prevention and education. For a second year, Tony came to speak with my 5th grade students. He was funny, appropriate, and inspiring. He had an excellent rapport with the students and they were interested and engaged during his discussion.

Thank you for all you do for our community. Your efforts make a positive impact on the lives of our students. I look forward to having Tony speak to my class again next year,

Dear Tony,

Thank you and Narconon Fresh Start so much for coming out to ND Charter School and speaking with our senior class. The students, teachers and myself greatly appreciate you and what you shared with us. You were an overwhelming hit and your presentations hit home with our students in a very personal and introspective way.

You did a fine job of taking a serious subject matter, like drug use, and helped us all laugh and learn at the same time through our discussions. Through all the laughter the students told me they learned a great about the consequences of drug use that they hadn’t heard of or known before.

Moreover, many of them said that they learned things that they were going to share with their family or friends. So your effort to spread knowledge and educate our students was certainly not wasted! I am deeply thankful to you for your unique ability to educate and inform our students; we are so fortunate to have you be our liaison.

I Can Help Other People Who are Addicted

I really enjoyed this and I thought it was really helpful advice for the future. Using the information I learned today I can help other people who are addicted.

My thoughts changed after hearing the talk today because I thought smoking was cool. I was even trying to do it one day. That’s how this changed me.

This motivated me to continue to stop smoking weed. I used to go out with my friends and we would smoke weed but my boyfriend inspired me to stop. I’m very happy I did because I see how stupid people look smoking weed and doing other hardcore drugs, like it’s so cool. This helps me to stay off.
