District honors TPHS students for anti-drug program

Seven students from SDUHSD spoke and were honored at a Sept. 12 SDUHSD board meeting for their work in a Latino youth outreach program focused on preventing drug and alcohol abuse.

Organized through the San Dieguito Alliance For Drug Free Youth, the group, composed of 11 students, is known as the Changers. Five of the members are from TPHS.

“It feels nice to know that we’re being taken seriously,” Kyra Dominguez (12), a member of the Changers, said. “They’re acknowledging [issues around drug use], bringing awareness and keeping themselves informed.”

During the board meeting, the students shared information about the program’s mission and recent campaigns they held.

In their latest campaign, “Sticker Shock,” the Changers partnered with several local alcohol retailers in Encinitas, Solana Beach and Carmel Valley to place stickers on alcohol products warning that alcohol consumption under 21 is illegal, in order to discourage adults from supplying alcohol to underage drinkers.

“I think it’s really important that [the board] recognize [the Changers] because usually if adults [tell] teenagers to not drink, they would not pay attention, but if they hear it from their own peers, they may be more inclined to not drink underage,” Andres Sotelo (11) said.

They also spoke about their retail education campaign, in which students went to local tobacco retailers to see if they were selling flavored vapes or cigarettes, which are banned in California.

“I love their commitment to making their community better,” Barbara Gordon, the adviser for the Changers, said.

Gordon has worked with the San Dieguito Alliance for 35 years.

  6. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
