CHS Students Attend Summit Meeting
Houston County Courier - October 2008
On Oct. 6, in Huntsville at the Region VI Educational Service Center, several Crockett High School students and their sponsor Braeshell Denman, Communities in School Youth Service coordinator attended Teen Summit 2008, hosted by the Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities and Straightway, a nationally known drug prevention organization.
CHS students that attended are Alex Butler, Aaron Simmons, DeMarcus Berry, Sarah Davis and Shamia Sherman. They participated in drama acts, singing, and dance that were about drug abuse and the dangers of it use.
Aaron Simmons and Sarah Davis, seniors at Crockett High School, were chosen by Straightway to do a rap song called "Ain't That Way" in the Grand Finale. The song was a personal testimony by one of the members of Straightway of how she wants to be loved and respected in a relationship.
Other schools attending the Teen Summit were Lovelady High School, Centerville High School, Bryan High School, Gulf Coast Youth Center, and New Waverly High School.
