Five area high schools to get anti-drug money


December 02, 2005|By JOHN-JOHN WILLIAMS IV

High schools in Howard, Harford and Baltimore counties were among five in the state named Wednesday to receive $500 anti-drug and anti-alcohol grants under a program that encourages students and their parents to speak openly with each other about drug and alcohol use.

The five schools are Atholton High in Howard County, C. Milton Wright High in Harford County, Duval High in Prince George's County, Loch Raven High in Baltimore County and Maurice J. McDonough High in Charles County. The awards are part of a statewide initiative, "I Want to Know/Live Clean."

This year's campaign was launched at Loch Raven High School. The event included Maryland first lady Kendel Ehrlich and State Superintendent of Schools Nancy S. Grasmick.

The grants announced were given to the schools where the greatest number of juniors and seniors, and their parents, signed pledges last spring to communicate about drug and alcohol use.
