Teachers honored for drug abuse class

Some 115 public school teachers, counselors and health assistants participated in Carroll Community College's 30-hour training program at the Institute for Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education over the summer.

To honor those participants, the Carroll County commissioners declared October Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Month.

School personnel taking the training share their knowledge with others in their school, as well as parents and the community.

Karen Merkle, director of Continuing Education/Community Services, and Dee Wright, coordinator for the Carroll Community College Institute for Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education, were given an award of merit from the Maryland Association for Higher Education.
